E.B. "Andy" White was a lot more than a children's book author--he was the co-author of The Elements of Style, Third Edition--something that shows in his own precise writer and a major part of The New Yorker magazine.This book is a collection of the columns he wrote for Harper's Magazine in the years before and the beginning of WW II.
There are essays on the oddities of life in rural Maine, musings on dogs and other farm animals and (most importantly, I think)some political writings that still resonate to this day. Some essays I skimmed, but others I found myself place marking to quote in some future blogpost. A classic for good reason
