The book that matters to me

We want to hear from you

In the August issue of ELLE we spoke to musicians, writers and directors about the books that changed their lives.

Ernest Hemingway’s final chapters broke Tom Odell’s heart, E.B White inspired Greta Gerwig to move to New York and ELLE’s Collette Lyons showed books can lead to finding The One (we kid you not).

The humble book has clearly got some kicking power.

And now it’s your turn. If you have an author you can’t live without, a story that changed your mind or simply read something so amazing it’s stuck with you since, we want to hear about it.
