"The author of Great Books for Girls again draws on her experience as a librarian. Like the companion volume, her new roundup includes picture books as well as books for middle graders and older readers, approximately to age 14. Odean's annotations are, as before, a clearly written combination of content and commentary, with basic imprint information (though no ISBNs) and suggested age level provided for each book. She has retained some titles from the previous book, but many are different. The organization is also slightly different here, and the table of contents has been expanded for easier use."--Booklist.

THE NATIONAL BESTSELLER At the age of forty-eight, writer and film critic David Denby returned to Columbia University and re-enrolled in two core courses in Western civilization to confront the literary and philosophical masterpieces -- the "great books" -- that are now at the heart of the culture wars. In Great Books, he leads us on a glorious tour, a rediscovery and celebration of such authors as Homer and Boccaccio, Locke and Nietzsche. Conrad and Woolf. The resulting personal odyssey is an engaging blend of self-discovery, cultural commentary, reporting, criticism, and autobiography -- an inspiration for anyone in love with the written word.
