Excerpt: "Every once in a while, I read a book that resonates with me so fully, I wish I could become close friends with its author. I presume this is the case with most inveterate readers: we see our lives represented in an author’s words, and feel that—perhaps for the first time— someone has articulated our own experiences and world views completely. We might even imagine spending a long afternoon talking faceto- face with the author over coffee, the book having convinced us that time together would pass quickly because we were so simpatico."
