Michael Lewis on Forbidden Books

The New York Times: What kind of reader were you as a child? And what were your favorite childhood books? 

Michael Lewis: The first books I really ripped through were the Hardy Boys mysteries. Around age 11, I began to resist the books that my teachers required me to read, in favor of books I suspected my teachers would disapprove of. I read “Rosemary’s Baby” before “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
