Summary
"What inspires you? That's the simple, but profound question more than forty renowned authors answer in [this book]. Each author picks a favorite passage--from a novel, a song, a poem--to reveal what gets them started and keeps them going doing the creative work they love. From there, ... stories of life-changing encounters with art emerge, like how sneaking a volume of Stephen King stories into his job as a night security guard helped Khaled Hosseini learn that nothing he creates will ever be truly finished. Or how discovering Toni Morrison's Beloved in college taught Junot Díaz how art can create communities of shared experience"--Provided by publisher
