really liked it
Read from August 02 to 20, 2012

The essays collected here are quite entertaining and reveal his humor, at least in the first section of literary criticism. The second half of the book consists of political essays which likewise are well written, but more bitter and angry. I don't in the least agree with his politics, but the essays are still enjoyable for their style and their personality. I hope a complete volume can be published soon: for as much as I liked this essays, I think I would have gotten more out of a fuller collection from which I could have selected essays related to my interests and to books and authors I know well.
