An Open Book

Item Details

An Open Book is the exuberant, beautifully written story of how comics and adventure stories, poetry and Proust can change your life. Hailed by Morris Dickstein as ``a glowing tribute to the world of books and the life of the mind,'' An Open Book communicates--as Eudora Welty's One Writer's Beginnings once did--the thrill of great reading to a new generation. In its pages, literary journalist Michael Dirda re-creates his boyhood in Ohio, recalling his colorful family, friends, and teachers as he celebrates the great writers and fictional characters who fueled his imagination.
