I Thought My Father Was God edited by Paul Auster


Philip Levine recommends
I Thought My Father Was God, true tales edited by Paul Auster: "Paul Auster has chosen one hundred eighty of the thousands of true tales submitted to NPR's National Story Project and divided them into eight categories (animals, objects, war, love, etc.) and introduced them with sympathy and verve. The power, wit, and elegance of these authentic voices are astounding. Like no other book I've read in years, this one restored my belief in Americans and the American experience." (Henry Holt)
