Thessaly La Force

My Ideal Bookshelf

The books that we choose to keep and display — let alone read — can say a lot about who we are and how we see ourselves. In My Ideal Bookshelf, more than one hundred leading cultural figures, including writers Chuck Klosterman, Mary Karr, Junot Diaz, and Jonathan Lethem, musicians Patti Smith an Thurston Moore, chefs and food writers Alice Waters and Mark Bittman, Hollywood figures Judd Apatow and James Franco, and fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, share the books that matter to them most—books that define their dreams and ambitions and in many cases helped them find their way in the world.

 Jane Mount's original paintings of the colorful and delightful book spines and occasional objets d'art from the contributors' personal bookshelves showcase the selections. Each painting is accompanied buy a short- first person essay drawn from interviews with Thessaly La Force that touch on everything from the choice of books to becoming a writer to surprising sources of inspiration.

 My Ideal Bookshelf is a perfect gift for avid readers, writers, artists, and all who have known the influence of a great book.
