When I was a Child I Read Books

When I was a Child I Read Books
By Marilynne Robinson
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012. 224 page. Nonfiction

I was drawn to this book by it's cover and would have never guessed the depth & breadth of the book's content. This is a collection of essays such as "Freedom of Thought" and "Austerity and Ideology." This is certainly one of the most interesting, thought-provoking, and engaging books I have ever read. Beautifully written essays in which myriad important ideas are slipped in. Robinson is well-read and articulate. The depth and breadth of her thought is remarkable.
