Mika Brzezinski's 6 best books

Mika Brzezinski is co-host, with Joe Scarborough, of the MSNBC program Morning Joe, and author of the new memoir, All Things at Once.

She told The Week magazine about her six best books. One title on the list:
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

I read Edith Wharton to go back in time—to when I was studying at Williams as an English major. That was a period in my life when there wasn’t so much noise around me.

The Age of Innocence also appears on Frances Kiernan's five best list of books that helped her understand the ways of New York society and David Kamp's list of six books that are notable for their food prose, and is among Honor Blackman's 6 best books.
