In “Shelf-Love,” Ben Dolnick recounts his feverish, hilarious, occasionally mortifying love for the writing of Alice Munro; an essay for everyone who has ever truly loved a book, and for anyone who has ever thought about writing one.
What a strange little collection. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about shelf love as a concept. Lord knows I love my shelf so much that I ran out of room. Shelf-Love, the short collection by Ben Dolnick is all about his love for Alice Munro; a perfectly respectable love. I think that Ben Dolnick, to justify the existence of Shelf-Love and to make himself seem a little less fan-boyish should make this a series and celebrate other writers he loves as well. I really enjoyed Shelf-Love but it did leave me feeling that there could be more to this.
