Corrigan, Maureen

Leave Me Alone, I`m Reading

Finding And Losing Myself in Books

€ 17.95

“Corrigan’s eclectic taste and skillful assessment of new writers as well as those long dead are particularly astute.” - USA Today
“It’s not that I don’t like people,” writes Maureen Corrigan in her introduction to Leave Me Alone, I’m Reading. “It’s just that there always comes a moment when I’m in the company of others-even my nearest and dearest-when I’d rather be reading a book.” In this delightful memoir, Corrigan reveals which books and authors have shaped her own life-from classic works of English literature to hard-boiled detective novels, and everything in between. And in her explorations of the heroes and heroines throughout literary history, Corrigan’s love for a good story shines.
“A brilliant and funny narrative of [Corrigan’s] own reading life, which ranges from her Catholic childhood to graduate school and a career as a professional reader.... Utterly original.” –Chicago Tribune
“Corrigan is erudite without being the least bit pretentious.... Dipping into Leave Me Alone, I’m Reading is a little like visiting that friend whose house is always full of books and who always sends you home with one you’re excited to read.” – Detroit Free Press
