It’s always interesting to know what inspires people who make art, especially writers. This book has essays on life-changing books by a strange total of 71 authors. But there are some really, really good ones!

A partial list of contributors:

  • Dorothy Allison
  • Kate Atkinson
  • Amy Bloom
  • Harold Bloom
  • Billy Collins
  • Doris Kearns Godwin
  • David Halberstam
  • Anne Lamott
  • Stewart O’Nan
  • Anne Perry

And many, many others I don’t know or care enough about to type out.

Note: There are several blank pages at the end of the book, which ostensibly could be used to make notes about the books that changed your life.
