By Heart 

By Heart is a series in which authors share and discuss their all-time favorite passages in literature. See entries from Colum McCann, George Saunders, Emma Donoghue, Michael Chabon, and more.


The most recent contribution is “How Gabriel Garcia Marquez Created a World in a Sentence” – The novelist Mary Morris explains how the opening line of One Hundred Years of Solitude shaped her path as a writer.

Special thanks to our own Gwen McNamara for sharing this wonderful series!
