My wife and I were in Alaska during the last week of June. In Ketichkan, I found a FE copy of her first book - The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down : A Hmong child, her American doctors, and the collision of two cultures, and it was in pristine condition. When we arrived back in Seattle, I found an autographed FE of At Large and At Small at Elliot Bay, so now I've got 2 copies, one of which I will simply give to someone.
I also have her 3rd book, Rereadings : Seventeen Writers Revisit Books They Love. The essays are all written by other authors, but none of them are nearly as interesting or well written as her introduction to the book.
Here's a link to her page with the Steven Barklay agency -- you can hear her being interviewed on NPR.
Sorry, can't seem to get the right touchstone to load. What a nuisance!!
I've only recently discovered anne fadiman, I read ex libris but I thought it was fantastic, especially the chapter 'never do that to a book' myself and my partner are very much at opposite ends of the spectrum anne mentions! I'm going to have to get some of her other books mentioned here.
I bought / read ex libris at the same time as used and rare ... has anyone else read that one? another great admission of book-aholicism and some very familiar characters in there from bookshops I've visited.
