Ten Years in the Tub : A Decade Soaking in Great Books
by Nick Hornby and Jess Walter


Overview - "How often do you begin reading a book that makes you--immediately, urgently, desperately--want to read more books?" ("Booklist"). Nick Hornby has managed to write just such a book in this hilarious, insightful, and infectious volume. "Ten Years in the Tub" chronicles Hornby's journey through a decade's worth of books, as related in his wildly popular Believer column "Stuff I've Been Reading."
"Ten Years in the Tub" is a one-way ticket into the mind of one of the most beloved contemporary writers on his favorite pastime, but it's also a meditation on what Celine Dion can teach us about ourselves, a warning about how John Updike can ruin our sex lives, and a recommendation for the way Body Shop Vanilla Shower Gel can add excitement to our days.

This "decade-long addiction for many... makes standing in line at the bank a blessed interval for snorting another page." (the "New York Times Book Review")
