From the book To keep a home library attractive and bright requires a little care and a lot of common sense You don t need to treat books like delicate S vres vases liable to self destruct at the mere presence of a toddler but neither should they be manhandled like the morning newspaper Take care of the books you have and you will have books worth taking care of Michael Dirda, Surveying the dizzying universe of classic books Michael Dirda the Pulitzer Prize winning literary essayist proves himself to be one of the most engaging critics of our time and great fun to read Opening with an impassioned critique of modern reading habits he then presents many of the great and idiosyncratic writers he loves most In this showcase of one hundred of the world s most astonishing books Dirda covers a remarkable range of literature including popular genres such as the detective novel and ghost story while never neglecting the deeper satisfactions of sometimes overlooked classics Short listed for the em Los Angeles Times em Book Award for criticism em Bound to Please em is a glorious celebration of just how much fun reading can be, b As warm and stimulating as a library to which one returns again and again b br b i Chicago Tribune i Editor s Choice b br br While books contain insights into our selves and the world it takes a conversation between the author and the reader or between two readers to bring them fully to life Drawing on sources as diverse as Dr Seuss and Simone Weil P G Wodehouse and Isaiah Berlin Pulitzer Prize winning critic Michael Dirda shows how the wit wisdom and enchantment of the written word informs and enriches nearly every aspect of life from education and work to love and death br br Organized by significant life events and abounding with quotations from great writers and thinkers i Book by Book i showcases Dirda s capacious love for and understanding of books Favoring showing as much as telling Dirda draws us deeper into the classics as well as lesser known works of literature history and philosophy always with an eye to how we might better understand our lives, No description available
