about this item

From a lifetime's reading W.B. Gooderham has distilled this unique book—an anthology of literary characters, with a different male and female voice for each year of a person’s life. The characters collected here reveal the sum of a human life, giving a sense of the passage of time from conception to old age through the prism of literature: the minuscule changes wrought upon our bodies and minds as consciousness blooms, experiences accrue, hopes rise and fall, options expand and then retract. Each of these voices—by turns witty and despairing, unexpected and apt—will strike a chord, showing us new ways of relating to some of the finest characters in literature as well as deeper ways of understanding the ways in which we change over time.
