A Good Life: Newspapering and Other Adventures
Biographies are the original self-help guides. It's like a life blow-by-blow by someone you admire. In this case this book was not only a great, inspiring read, it was my how to live a big life instruction manual.
Franny and Zooey
Reading Catcher in the Rye is always hard because you fly through it so fast and are always hungry for more. Discovering Franny and Zooey when I was a kid was like finding a half-eaten birthday cake in the back of the fridge. Every morsel was delicious, mostly because I was starving for more Salinger.
The Other Side of Midnight
No one today can fathom not being able to just click on their phones for a bit of debauchery. Way back when, there was nothing! National Geographic had the odd nude shot. As a red-blooded Canadian teenager I remember stumbling upon this book on the cottage book shelf. Everything about it was steamy. I loved it. Too much info, I know I know.
