Ever wish you could peek into the bookshelf of a New York Times columnist? This week The Daily Beast fulfilled your desires with special feature looking at Nicholas Kristof‘s favorite books (pictured, via Sara Barrett).
The columnist is currently promoting his own book, “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide,” so the list is especially timely. His list includes everything from a Lee Child thriller to a Chinese memoir to a book about world poverty.
Here are the columnist’s thoughts about “Commencement” by J. Courtney Sullivan: “A terrific debut novel following a group of young friends at Smith College in the years before and after graduation. It’s a literary page-turner that was just published a few months ago, and it’s a beautiful exploration of friendship and feminism.”
