Museums have always been bastions of inspiration, wonder, and learning. In Treasure Palaces, twenty-four brilliant writers recount their most memorable museum moments. Though you'll find several famous national galleries within the pages, not all of the essays take place in huge city landmarks. Irish author Roddy Doyle tells of his trip to the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York City, and why the utter ordinariness of its previous inhabitants makes the location so compelling. Biographer Ann Wroe recounts a visit to Dove Cottage in England, strolling through the rain to follow in the footsteps of poet William Wordsworth. Explore these and many more historic places and collections, and view them with fresh eyes and a unique insight that only seasoned wordsmiths can offer. (SM)
