In what has become an annual rite of spring, graduation speeches are turned into gift books and piled on Graduation tables in bookstores nationwide. It’s always hard to handicap which one will be the winner in any given year. For instance, this year I would have put my money on cult director John Waters’ Make Trouble from Algonquin Books.
But it seems that Wait, What? has struck the right cultural chord this year–in part thanks to the CBS This Morning interview below. We instantly sold out last week but have plenty more books landing this week. So order up!
“This compulsively readable book is that rare work that will appeal to … any reader interested in hearing wise advice from a charming (and funny) author, and, most of all, leading a meaningful life.”
— James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
