What do the great books of your youth have to say about your life now? Smoklers essays on the classics witty, down-to-earth, appreciative, and insightful are divided into ten sections, each covering an archetypical stage of life from youth and first love to family, loss, and the future. The author not only reminds you about the essential features of each great book but gives you a practical, real-world reason why revisiting it in adulthood is not only enjoyable but useful.
