Montaigne Strikes Again

This article is more than 9 years old.

Author Sarah Bakewell won the National Book Critics Circle award for biography last week for her work, "How to Live: Or a Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer."  She joined us to talk about Montaigne in November, if you want to bone up on advice from a 16th-century "blogger."

Also, Kwame Anthony Appiah just wrote an article in Slate on Montaigne and Sarah's book.  It's worth checking out.
