50 Books for Life, by Roy Peachey

SKU GW- 9781621384687

50 Books for Life. A Concise Guide to Catholic Literature. The trouble with new books is that they prevent us from reading old ones. That was the view of Joseph Joubert writing at the turn of the nineteenth century, and the problem is even more acute today. With fifty chapters on fifty books by fifty different authors, 50 Books for Life is a new book that reveals the riches of older ones, providing an accessible introduction to Catholic novels, plays, poetry, and non-fiction from every corner of the globe. Taking us from twenty-first century Korea to the Bible via the work of Waugh, Dryden, and Dante, 50 Books for Life is a guide that can be read from cover to cover or dipped into at spare moments. It is a book that points beyond itself to books that can engage us for a lifetime.
