"An absolute delight for those of us who live to read (and reread) . . . Fadiman has done such a fine job of selecting and arranging these pieces that they become a kind of composite literary coming-of-age memoir from the geeky, horny adolescent madly thumbing Franny and Zooey or Lord Jim in some shag-carpeted suburban basement bedroom to the sadder but wiser critic, novelist, poet who gazes wistfully at the ghost of a younger self rising from the pages of a once-loved book." --David Laskin, The Seattle Times

"A delightful glimpse into the relationship between reader and book." --Teresa K. Weaver, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"f you're a fan of Anne Fadiman's Ex Libris--and who among right-thinking people isn't?--then your heart will skip a beat over her new anthology, Rereadings . . . thoroughly enjoyable essays" --Claire Dederer, Newsday

"A deep and wonderfully complex story about relationships . . . Anne Fadiman's diverse collection of essays encourages readers to rethink the way we see our favorite books and ultimately the way we see ourselves through them." --Jill Marr, Pages
