    This witty collection of essays recounts a lifelong love affair with books and language. For Fadiman, the books she loves have become chapters in her own life story, and revives the tradition of the well-crafted personal essay with anecdotes on Coleridge and Orwell as well as her own literary family. 25,000.

Small but perfectly formed

by Frank C on May 10, 2012

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.

Delightful

by bookswallower on Dec 20, 2008

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 !!
