Creationists: Selected Essays 1993-2006 by E.L. Doctorow
Weight: 8 oz
Method of Disposal: Donating

Creationists was great. Doctorow writes about Poe, Clemmons, Hemmingway, Stowe, Kafka, Melville, and many other renown authors, but he does it in a new way. There is a mixture of historical information, biography, criticism, praise, and individual connectedness to each essay. Did you know Stowe had 9 children and an overbearing (read: abusive) husband when she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which sold only second to the Bible in its time.

At a time where I am almost constantly thinking about mortality, this book was kind of perfect. Let me know if you want it! Thanks for passing it on, Mom!
