Jonathan Kozol: most important books

Jonathan Kozol is an activist and National Book Award winner best known for his works on public education. His latest book is Letters to a Young Teacher.

He told Newsweek about his five most important books, and addressed two related issues:
A book to which you will always return:

"The House at Pooh Corner" by A. A. Milne. No other book reflects so tenderly the magic of childhood.

A classic book that, upon revisiting, disappointed:

"The Four Quartets" by T. S. Eliot. I don't think he had enough red wine or erotic juices in his veins. Dry as British skeleton bones.
