Description
(Featured on NPR and included in the New York Times Roundup of Holiday Coffee Table Books) In this unusual book of portraits, illustrator Jane Mount depicts such cultural figures as Michael Chabon, David Chang, Jennifer Egan, Malcolm Gladwell, Miranda July, Maira Kalman, Thomas Keller, Chuck Klosterman, James Patterson, David Sedaris, and Patti Smith through watercolor drawings of their favorite books on a shelf. Alice Waters, for example, keeps Elizabeth David and M.F.K. Fisher close, but also Jean Giono's The Man Who Planted Trees. Dave Eggers cites Saul Bellow's Herzog and Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita as the books that remind him of what is possible on the page, while Nancy Pearl loves Merle Miller's A Gay and Melancholy Sound and Nora Johnson's A Step Beyond Innocence"the kind of book you want to hug."
