Pamela Paul - My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues

Upcoming Event
Monday, May 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm

As editor of The New York Times Book Review, Paul has a professional relationship with books. But that’s only one facet of her lifelong devotion to reading. Another is reflected in her twenty-eight years with Bob. Her constant companion, Bob is the Book of Books, a log in which Paul records what she reads. A combination life-list, diary, and philosophy of reading, Paul’s memoir uses  Bob as a prompt for her engaging narratives of a childhood of compulsive reading, her college years, her overseas adventures in Thailand, Cambodia, and France, her career as a freelance writer, and marriage. From The Trial to A Spy among Friends to Autobiography of a Face, Bob charts Paul’s changing ideas, dreams, and goals.

Paul will be in conversation with Susan Coll, author of The Stager.
