“Immensely likable, eclectic, and dynamic” (Booklist), Maureen Corrigan brings intellectual rigor and an infectious enthusiasm to her literary reviews on NPR’s Fresh Air and the “Book World” section of The Washington Post. She is also the author of 2005’s Leave Me Alone, I’m Reading, a literary memoir about the books and authors that have shaped her life. Corrigan’s reviews have appeared in dozens of publications, including the New York Times, The Nation, and The Boston Globe. She also is currently the Critic-in-Residence at Georgetown University. So We Read On encourages readers to rediscover the greatness of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s enduring masterpiece, The Great Gatsby.
