Product description

Review

Advance praise for "The Telling Room"

"Elegant, strange, funny, and insightful, "The Telling Room" is a marvelous tale and a joyful read, a trip into a world peopled by some of the most remarkable characters--and, yes, cheese--in memory."--Susan Orlean, author of "The Orchid Thief"

"The list of writers I would read even if they were to write about a piece of cheese has always been short, but it includes Michael Paterniti. He has proved here that if you love something enough and pay a passionate enough attention to it, the whole world can become present in it. That's true of both the cheese and the book."--John Jeremiah Sullivan, author of "Pulphead"
" "
"An amazing achievement, "The Telling Room" is an inspired, masterly epic that expands and refigures the parameters of the storyteller's art."--Wells Tower, author of "Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned"
" "
"A gorgeous and impassioned monument to the art and mystery of storytelling, "The Telling Room" is rich, funny, humane, devastating, and beautiful. It made me want to applaud, it made me want to cry, it made me want to move to Spain. Michael Paterniti is a genius."--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love"

"Michael Paterniti is one of the best living practitioners of the art of literary journalism, able to fully elucidate and humanize the everyday and the epic. In his hands, every subject, every moment of personal or global upheaval, is treated with the same curiosity, respect, empathy, and clear-eyed wisdom."--Dave Eggers, author of "A Hologram for the King" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Michael Paterniti is the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Driving Mr. Albert: A Trip Across America with Einstein's Brain." His writing has appeared in many publications, including "The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Harper's, Outside, Esquire, "and "GQ, "where he works as a correspondent. Paterniti has been nominated eight times for the National Magazine Award, and is the recipient of a NEA grant and two MacDowell Fellowships. He lives in Portland, Maine, with his wife and their three children. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
