Montaigne by Stefan Zweig
James’s first review of the year
really liked it
A marvelous little study in which Zweig clearly casts Montaigne as a proto-Zweig. Also confirms that Montaigne, anticipating Rousseau, is the antithesis of Augustine--and yet also so close.

Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen
Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen
James’s last review of the year
really liked it
An autobio that is at once well-crafted yet raw; the voice is mature, measured, but still has the gravel of Springsteen's defiant underbite. I imagine there is another side to this story, but Springsteen seems generous even to those who might have disappointed him. In the end, the is a story of a father and a son and the chapter on his Father's death might be the best.
