it was amazing

what i loved about these essays--i read most but not all--was how white so effortlessly moves around from idea to story to idea, and so on. "the drift" of his prose, as my friend dana put it. there's smart, elegant meditations on life and death as filtered through e.b.'s hobby farm experiences, interesting tales of his adventures as a younger man, and a number of essays, written in the fifties and sixties, that handle the topic of racial segregation. it struck me as i read those, that i'd read a lot of history, seen a lot of film about the 60s, but had never read thoughtful, artful meditations on the subject as written by people contemporary to the struggle. glad i read this....
