Owen Wilson, the movie star, loves to read. His mind is filled with quotes from favourite books, which he is able to recall at a moment’s notice. In this rare interview he invites The Happy Reader to get to know him while perusing the classic and not-so-classic titles stacked up around his home.
Also Book of the Season for summer in The Happy Reader Issue 13 is an eternal bestseller by the Stoic philosopher, imperial life coach and Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. The book is his secret diary that everyone is reading, the Meditations. With contributions from writers including Geoff Dyer and Deborah Levy and the photographer Martin Parr, the second half of the magazine tells you all you may ever need to know about nature, exercise, philosophy and love.
