"What inspires you? That's the simple, but profound question more than forty renowned authors answer in [this book]. Each author picks a favorite passage--from a novel, a song, a poem--to reveal what gets them started and keeps them going doing the creative work they love. From there, ... stories of life-changing encounters with art emerge, like how sneaking a volume of Stephen King stories into his job as a night security guard helped Khaled Hosseini learn that nothing he creates will ever be truly finished. Or how discovering Toni Morrison's Beloved in college taught Junot D©Ưaz how art can create communities of shared experience"-- Provided by publisher.
