University of Michigan professor Thomas C. Foster has established a healthy extracurricular reputation as the creator of engaging intros to classics. In fact, his How to Read Literature Like a Professor and How to Read Novels Like a Professor have won readerships far beyond the classrooms. His new Twenty-five Books That Shaped America serves a comparable purpose by placing seminal works within the context of our national myths and philosophy. Some of his book selections are predictable (Leaves of Glass; Huckleberry Finn; Walden); others, like Cat in the Hat, Love Medicine, and Song of Solomon, less so. An insightful refresher course on the books that made us who we are.
