Barack Obama on fiction, storytelling, and the power of reading to shape you 

“Fiction was useful as a reminder of the truths under the surface of what we argue about every day and was a way of seeing and hearing the voices, the multitudes of this country.”

Barack Obama sat down with NYTimes Book critic Michiko Kakutani and discussed the reading that sustained him during his presidency. Well worth the read.
