In a recent interview, writer Jeanette Winterson was asked, “What book changed your life?”
Here is her answer: “The Bible shaped me; Virginia Woolf’s Orlando shaped my imagination; and Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities gave me the courage to write whatever I wanted.”
I posed the same question to myself just moments ago and felt hard-pressed to come up with an answer. I guess I’ll have to swish it around in my mind for awhile.
Meanwhile, I pose the question to you: “What book changed your life?”
