Francine Prose- "What to Read and Why"

In this brilliant collection, the follow-up to her New York Times bestseller Reading Like a Writer, distinguished novelist, literary critic, and essayist, Francine Prose celebrates the pleasures of reading and pays homage to the works and writers she admires above all others, from Jane Austen and Charles Dickens to Jennifer Egan and Roberto Bolaño.

Written with her sharp critical analysis, wit, and enthusiasm, What to Read and Why is a celebration of literature that will give readers a new appreciation for the power and beauty of the written word.
