145: Books You Must Read Before You Die—Joseph Pearce
If Joseph Pearce had a superhero alter ego, it would be…Bookman! I know of very few other scholars more qualified to recommend the great books we all ought to read before we go to The Great Printer. The British born writer, editor, and professor of literature has spent his life mining the gold from the raw ore of books out there. How great to have a guide who can tell gold apart from fool’s gold.
This exchange was a lot of fun, and I know you’ll learn as much as I did.

Pearce’s favorites to read and reread
