There are so many more genres I’m leaving out, including travel, self-help, y, business, philosophy, criticism, and more. And of course there are wonderful works of nonfiction written before the twentieth century. Nonfiction is a VAST field

There are so many more genres I’m leaving out, including travel, self-help, y, business, philosophy, criticism, and more. Nonfiction is a VAST field. I could easily write a list of the 1,000 best nonfiction books, but that would be overwhelming for everybody! Hopefully you will find some books you love here and some books you haven’t read and might want to try. What do you think are the best nonfiction books of all time? ay.

Marguerite Yourcenar Biography - The first woman to be elected to The French Academy, the multi talented personality of Marguerite Yourcenar was a novelist, essayist, playwright, short. In 1914, she visited England where she learned English for one year while visiting famous historical sites and museums. Upon return to Paris, her father began teaching her Ancient Greek. a teenager, Marguerite began writing at an early age. Her first books to be published, Le Jardin des Chimères (1921) and Les Dieux ne sont pas morts (1922) were poetry collections. The sophisticatedly written poems followed Greek myths seeking relevance to the modern world.

I actually prefer non-fiction books but I seem to focus on non-fiction published in the last 10 years, which doesn't help for a list of this nature. As I put the list to together, I was surprised by how many 'classics' I had read and shocked by how many I had not. No Jane Austen. Sorry about that - I'll try and cover them off in the next 50 years. I should also explain that becoming a parent opens the door to reading classics you missed as a child and rejuvenates your interest in books from the past.
