""Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books," by Maureen Corrigan.

"It's not that I don't like people," writes Maureen Corrigan in her introduction to "Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading."

"It's just that there always comes a moment when I'm in the company of others -- even my nearest and dearest -- when I'd rather be reading a book."

In this delightful memoir, Corrigan reveals which books and authors have shaped her own life -- from classic works of English literature to hard-boiled detective novels, and everything in between.

And in her explorations of the heroes and heroines throughout literary history, Corrigan's love for a good story shines.
