This is a really funny book for any book lover to own, "award-winning caricaturist Edward Sorel uses his distinctive style to illustrate the strange outrageous lives of ten iconic literary figures: Tolstoy, Rand, Proust, Yeats, Hellman, Jung, Sartre, Eliot, Brecht, and Mailer."
The short comics quickly sum up their lives - and the most extraordinary facts about these famous authors. I've read most of them, it is a fun read!
It's the weekend!
One week left to enter my giveaway #champagnechildGA , thank you to everyone who has entered!
Finished this book today after only two days! I know this is a normal amount of time it takes other readers to finish a book, but since I'm more of a slow reader or tend to get tired eyes quickly AND I usually almost exclusively read on the train during the week, it was a really fast read to me. Anyway, this is Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon (I'm so sorry my stupid hand covers the name, only realized that just now) and it's also a bestseller. I really enjoyed this one! The story was beautiful and it shows you what real living should be// "Life is a gift. Don't forget to live it." .
