From the creator of the popular Instagram account Subway Book Review comes a collection of over 150 stories from strangers on the subway about what they're reading and why, crafting a bibliophilic portrait who we are, where we're going and the stories that unite us.
Beutter Cohen photographs readers on the train and at stations and asks about books they’re reading, but it becomes so much more than that thanks to the author’s intelligent, sensitive questions and the famous, semi-famous, and absolutely fabulous reader-riders’ replies ... A vibrant, varied love note to New York. Readers will feel hopeful after hearing from Beutter Cohen's delightful subjects, and perhaps emboldened to engage a stranger in conversation.
With a genuine curiosity for the city’s wealth of perspectives, Beutter Cohen’s interviews show how deep a person’s connection to a book can go; after all, she writes,'books are a reflection of our identities and souls.' Literature lovers will relish this insightful compendium.
