Less: A Novel | Andrew Sean Greer

Pickpick

Writing like I‘ve never read before. “What was it like to live with genius? Like living alone. Everything had to be sacrificed for the work. Plans had to be canceled, meals had to be delayed; Keep the habit. Did you love it, the rain dance every day? Only when it rained. Where did the genius come from? Where did it go? Like allowing another lover into the house to live with you, someone you‘d never met but whom you knew he loved more than you.”

I found many of my favorite authors in this book (Alice Hoffman, Anne Lamott, Elizabeth Berg, Kate Atkinson, Sark) and loved reading their personal stories about the books that impacted them most. (I also added quite a few of their picks to my TBR. 😉📚) This an older book published in 2007, but I still wish it included less politicians and more diverse authors.

ljuliel Do you recall if Elizabeth Berg mentioned Maeve Binchy ? In one of her books I recently read, her character in the book was reading a Maeve Binchy book, and mentioned that she cried when she heard Maeve had died. I was wondering if Berg was a huge fan of hers and put that in her fictional story as a sort of tribute ? 1d

Who Was Dr. Seuss? | Janet Pascal

“Theodor Suess Geisel“ I think kids will find it crazy that Dr. Suesse's name isn't actually Dr. Suess!

I'd share this book to my kids after sharing a couple of Dr. Suess books with them.

“Who Was Dr. Seuss?“ by Janet Pascal, 2011. Biography chapter book. This book is all about Dr. Suess! Kids would definitely be interested because of their love for Dr. Suess books. I think it would be cool for kids to get to know the author behind some of their favorite books!

This book was great. It is a biography of E.B. White, who wrote one of the most beloved stories of Charlottes Web, and was written in 2016. The book tells of the writing that was done by E.B. White and how some of his works got turned into movies.
Something that I really appreciated while reading this book were the illustrations. These illustrations included some pictures that were drawn and some that were real photographs of E.B. White.

em_lemo One of my favorite pages throughout the book includes what was given to En for his eleventh birthday.
“Now the best part of the summer was not just being out of school by waking early, before the rest of the family, and sneaking out onto the lake in his own canoe.“
I liked this because the book was very organized and well thought out when it came to the placement of his life as a young child.

“He was a boy who loved zoos and drawing silly animals, a college boy voted “least likely to succeed”, and an author and illustrator who changed children‘s books forever.”

As a kid I think I always just pictured Dr. Suess at the Cat in The Hat, so I think it's really interesting for kids to have a name to put to the face of the author of so many of their favorite books.
