"When people ask me for my biography, I tell them the books I have read." The quotation is from Russian poet Osip Mandelstam, but it might serve equally well as the rubric for Pat Conroy's new memoir. My Life in Books recapitulates a long, fruitful career of reading; from the hit-and-miss forays of a neophyte to his encounters with masterpieces that have shaped his life. And chances are that while you are immersing yourself in Conroy's memories, you will be creating your own autobiography of reading. Bound to be an apt gift for any bibliophile.
