The Whole Five Feet: What the Great Books Taught Me About Life, Death, and Pretty Much Everthing Else
InThe Whole Five Feet, Christopher Beha turns to the great books for answers after undergoing a series of personal and family crises and learning that his grandmother had used the Harvard Classics to educate herself during the Great Depression. The result is a smart, big-hearted, and inspirational mix of memoir and intellectual excursion that deftly illustrates how books can save ones life (Helen Schulman).
