A book that, upon rereading, was disappointing:Read about Gordon's most important books.
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. As a teenager, I thought it was the most profound text imaginable. As an adult, it seemed easy and slick.
A book you care most about sharing with your children:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. So that they can understand a witty woman is the most desirable, and so that we could have conversations about the Bennets in the way we might about the people down the block.
