Ross Gay: The Book of (More) Delights

By TPLCulture

New York Times bestselling author Ross Gay discusses his latest book, a new essay collection of small, daily wonders, again written over the course of a year.

In The Book of (More) Delights, Gay explores why what delights us is what connects us, what gives us meaning, from the joy of hearing a nostalgic song blasting from a passing car to the pleasure of refusing the “nefarious” scannable QR code menus, from the tiny dog he fell hard for to his mother baking a dozen kinds of cookies for her grandchildren.

Ross Gay speaks with author Chelene Knight about The Book of (More) Delights, a collection that explores the mysterious ways this glorious earth delights us.
