The title essay and the one about jumping out of an airplane are more than worth the price of admission, but I found some of the pages a bit too cloyingly Perecian (ie, fascinated with the exquisite details of the world) and had to skip or skim. Will come back to this one whenever I need to luxuriate in highly detailed, intelligent, playful language.
