Anne Fadiman understands!

In this book, she tackles the topic of her lifelong love affair with words and literature. Her funny, erudite essays are some of the best I've read on the subject. The librarian in me absolutely adored the opening essay, in which she explains that she didn't really feel married to her husband of five years until they decided to consolidate their book collections.
