When you were young and idealistic, who was the person you saw in the mirror? What were your expectations and those of your family and community? And now that you're older and have attained prominence, how do you feel about the person you have become and the direction your life has actually taken?

Twenty celebrated authors tackle meaningful questions about the choices made, their achievements, and their disappointments. In their reflective essays, they explore the person they expected to become or perhaps desperately wanted to be (or feared they might be), and the person they are today.

These eloquent pieces are certain to captivate and make you see the world and yourself afresh.
