He is a lovely writer, but he is so old-school and canonical in his literary tastes that I found myself wishing that he were a less Euro-centric and more adventurous reader. Reading this book did make me want to read some PG Wodehouse, but other than that, few of his book recommendations were compelling to me (he does not seem to read many women, many non-British or American writers, or many people of color).

Stacey He is a beautiful writer, but he has very traditional and conservative taste in literature, and he is very Western-centric, so that was a disappointing.
