What is the measure of a great book?
Perhaps the best articulation of what books do for the soul comes from one of the most influential writers of the 20th century; Franz Kafka, who said: “… we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us. That is my belief.”
