Read from November 23, 2011 to January 07, 2012

I can't decide whether I should give this three or four stars. Some essays I enjoyed immensely, some I thought had lost their relevance and would have been more "sensational" thirty years ago. But what I retained from the pieces that captured my attention in this collection of Klima's writings was the best of the best. I especially enjoyed his thoughts on writing and being a writer re the temperament of experience and the aspects of the drive to write.
