Ex Libris: 100+ Books to Read and Reread

Legendary literary critic Michiko Kakutani has always found escape and sanctuary in books. In Ex Libris, she curates a personal selection of over 100 works of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, with passionate essays describing the profound effect each has had on her life. From Homer to Martin Luther King, via Margaret Atwood and Elena Ferrante, she covers a vast range of books and provides an unmissable reminder of why we fell in love with reading in the first place.

Includes vintage bookplate-style illustrations by lettering artist Dana Tanamachi, dotted between the essays.
