The Book of Delights: Ross Gay's Year of Willful Gladness

The more you study delight, the more delight there is to study…I felt my life to be more full of delight. Not without sorrow or fear or pain or loss. But more full of delight.

The Book of Delights: Ross Gay’s Year of Willful Gladness

“On the day he turned 42, the writer Ross Gay set himself a challenge. Every day for a year, he would write an essay about something delightful. He wrote about nicknames, fireflies, reckless air quotes. And about a hundred of those essays are now collected in his new book appropriately enough titled “The Book Of Delights.” When he came into our studios, Ross Gay told me that finding those delights turned out to be easier than he expected.” Hear more from Ross Gay in this NPR interview. { read more }
