FROM THIS EPISODE

Constantine Phipps' What You Want (Quercus) is a book chronicling one man's pursuit of happiness after separating from his wife. Written entirely in heroic couplets, there is nothing heroic about the narrator's journey. His is a tale of the ordinary, everyday quest for contentedness. In his search, he turns to history's great thinkers, exploring every notion from Dante to Disney for advice on how to live his life. Phipps talks about verse as adding something extra and allowing for an ease of movement through big ideas from often unnamed philosophies and thinkers. Clarity is the goal of this digestible, read-aloud book.
