In the documentary”180 Degrees

8/11/10 — In the documentary"180 Degrees South," filmmaker Jeff Johnson quotes a friend: "The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask." For me the same thing often proves to be true when reading a good novel. Along with entertainment and the pure pleasure of a well-told story, the journey from page one to The End can illuminate the unexpected, giving me the opportunity to live a more examined life. Books. May they always crowd our shelves, backpacks, and lives!
