Book Title: The Joy of Life

Author: Emma Wolf

Book Description:

I chose Emma Wolf's The Joy of Life not because that particular novel had an impact on my thinking but because researching Emma Wolf's biography taught me the pleasure of primary research: the arduous detective work and the pleasure of discovery -- a far cry from theoretical interpretation that had been my Ph.D. training.
