Now, authors Nora Katz, Wilson Josephson, Jill Poslanzer, and Harry Bliss have collaborated to bring their humorous and witty prose in book form, lightly illustrated. I loved the variety of authors and characters represented, and I liked how it was a good blend of extremely well-known authors and characters, ones I had heard of but didn't know much about, old and new authors/characters, and completely new names. In fact, I looked up several authors to add to my reading list based on the descriptions in the book.
The book is easy to read, whether or not you know a lot about literature. The stories, even about new authors, are humorous, tongue-in-cheek, and fun. It's a great book for anyone who loves to read, drink coffee, or both.
