I've always been fascinated by listening to stories of the influences that shaped people's career trajectories, especially the paths of writers. In The Book That Made Me, Judith Ridge brings together over thirty writers (from Australia and New Zealand) who share their early influences. At first, I wondered if I would be interested in unfamiliar writers, but this proved not to be a problem. Each essay was honest, poignant, and showed again and again how books can take us out of our everyday lives, help us feel understood, and give us courage. I know that books made a difference in my life; read how they made a difference in the lives of these successful authors.
NetGalley shared an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
