They come at you, if not from ambush, then in gnomic haikus, ice pick laser beams, or waves. Even the space on the page around these sentences is more interesting than it ought to be, as if to square a sandbox for a Sphinx"--John Leonard, introduction; very good copy of 7-year-old Didion omnibus nonfiction hardback.
