The Book That Changed My Life

Tor Seidler

Tor SeidlerTor Seidler was a 1997 National Book Awards Finalist for Young People's Literature for Mean Margaret.

I haven't gone back to it in years, and at this point probably wouldn't even count it among my favorite novels. But its effect on me was more powerful that War and Peace or Pride and Prejudice or any other book. It basically knocked my legs out from under me, leaving me on my knees at the altar of the written word.

All best,

Tor Seidler
