    • I picked up this book because John Leonard had a chapter on Bruce Chatwin, one of the few people that have written about Minaret of Djam (the other is Freya Stark). (If you know of more, please let me know, it's a new current obsession.) While it shed no light on the Minaret of Djam, and it probably says something telling about me that I had no idea who John Leonard was and have never actually read more than half the authors he reviewed, the essays were pretty fascinating. Primo Levi was the fir [...]


    • John Leonard's use of the English language is inspiring, but I was particularly intrigued by the essay on Primo Levi. Also covered are Mary McCarthy, Arthur Koestler, Rimbaud, Podhoretz, Bellow, and a host of other wordsmiths. I especially liked learning the particulars of Levi's suicide. What a heart the man had.The essays included in this compilation are often good introductions to works no longer discussed today.
