Book Synopsis An Open Book by : Michael Dirda

Download or read book An Open Book written by Michael Dirda and published by W. W. Norton & Company. This book was released on 2004 with total page 340 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An Open Book is the exuberant, wonderfully entertaining story of how comics and adventure novels, poetry and Proust can change your life. Hailed by readers and critics alike, An Open Book is, in the words of literary critic Morris Dickstein, "charming, memorable, and irresistible ... a glowing tribute to the world of books and the life of the mind." In its pages, Pulitzer Prize-winning literary journalist Michael Dirda re-creates, with captivating humor and poignancy, his boyhood in working-class Ohio and his later education at Oberlin College. Along the way he recalls his colorful family, friends, and teachers-and the great writers and fictional characters who fueled his imagination. Like Eudora Welty's One Writer's Beginnings before it, "this marvelous memoir" (Kirkus Reviews) conveys all the excitement of a lifelong passion for reading. Book jacket.
