At age seven, ERIC HANSON read a biography of Kit Carson and has been interested in famous lives ever since. He grew up to be a writer and illustrator whose artwork has appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Harper’s, the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Travel & Leisure, and Gourmet, among other publications. His fiction and satire have been published in McSweeney’s.
Eric Hanson strings together bits and chunks of personal stories and history through the lives of writers, artists, politicians and others in our milieu. If you wonder about where are on on the path of life compared to others, if you love biographies but don't have time to read a full book... if you want to be entertained and learn something, buy this. You can pick it up and read it for 2 minutes, or read it cover to cover. "A Book of Ages" is a great gift!
