About the Book

A wise, witty, spirited collection of short pieces and essays by the inimitable E. B. White.

Written for the New Yorker over a span of forty-nine years, these 161 pieces show White’s changing concerns and development as a writer. In matchless style White writes about everything from cicadas to Khrushchev, from Thoreau to hyphens, from academic freedom to lipstick, from New York garbagemen to the sparrow, from Maine to the space age, from the Constitution to Harold Ross and even the common cold.

White has been described by one critic as “our finest essayist,” and these short works and essays are classics to be read, savored, and read again. Also included are an Introduction and Selective Bibliography by Rebecca M. Dale.

Critical Praise

“Anything written by E.B. White must be cherished by writers and readers. . . . More than 150 of his unsigned pieces, mostly from the magazine’s opening section, ‘Notes and Comment,’ have been unearthed by Rebecca M. Dale for this delightful book.” — Herbert Mitgang, New York Times
