    Though the 'familiar essay' as practised by Lamb and Hazlitt is possibly in its death-throes, Anne Fadiman sees it as her mission to rescue the genre from total extinction - and she does so with warmth, wit and style. I cannot recommend this - and her other books of short essays - too highly.

    A delightful volume - for the unashamed book lover !! And makes a charming gift for a friend. This is the sort of book that every book lover, who feels that they could never write like a "real author", realises that this is the book that they would have written - if only they could !!
