Michael Lewis: By the Book - NYTimes.com

Michael Lewis: By the Book - NYTimes.com:



"What kind of reader were you as a child? And what were your favorite childhood books? 



 The first books I really ripped through were the Hardy Boys mysteries. Around age 11, I began to resist the books that my teachers required me to read, in favor of books I suspected my teachers would disapprove of. I read “Rosemary’s Baby” before “To Kill a Mockingbird.” I learned of the existence of masturbation from “Portnoy’s Complaint” — which I read only because I sensed my parents had tried to hide it. Philip Roth still occupies an unusual place in my heart."
