The Unbreakable Laura Hillenbrand

21hillenbrand-master675-v5

Last month's New York Times Magazine story about this remarkable author (above) who has somehow — working through the dizziness and disorientation of chronic fatigue syndrome that has essentially left her housebound for 28 years since its onset during her sophomore year of college in 1986 — managed to produce two of the most critically and commercially successful nonfiction books in recent decades, is compelling reading.

"'Seabiscuit" and "Unbroken" have together sold more than 10 million copies, and the hardcover edition of "Unbroken" remained on the [New York] Times best-seller list for 185 continuous weeks..., the fourth-longest reign of all time."
