Say you only had one small bookshelf to fit all your favorite books on to. Which ones would make the cut? More than 100 famed authors, artists and musicians reveal their answers in this book-lover's version of a juicy tell-all. Each writer’s answers are brief, yet reveal that Dave Eggers feels "an electric current" shoot through him every time he reads Saul Bellow's Herzog and that Mary Karr found solace in The House at Pooh Corner. Equally bewitching are the whimsical, spot-on illustrations of their bookshelves. A charming ode to literature—one that you should clear space for on your own shelf.
