What's it about?

One of the great pleasures of reading is to slip into another place, another time, and another life for a while—and to learn more about the world by becoming someone else. Some of the memoirs in this collection deal with heavy subject matter, because hardship often has something essential to teach us about the world and the complexities of being human. But empathizing with others can console and inspire us as we navigate our own hardships—and even push us to work towards a better world.
