1,000 books to read before you die: a life-changing list by James Mustich; with Margot Greenbaum Mustich, Thomas Meagher, and Karen Templer
Added January 10, 2019

Encompassing fiction, poetry, science and science fiction, memoir, travel writing, biography, children's books, history, and more, 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die moves across cultures and through time to present an eclectic collection of titles, each described with the special enthusiasm readers summon when recommending a book to a friend. Mustich provides brief (usually one page) introductions to works of fiction, poetry, science and science fiction, memoir, travel writing, biography, children's books, history, and more. Ranging across cultures and through time, this eclectic collection of works is not a proscriptive list of the 'great works' but a celebration of the glorious mosaic that is our literary heritage. Arranged alphabetically by author, the list is a life-changing list for a lifetime of reading. -- Adapted from jacket
