it was amazing
Read in November, 2008

Luckily, I had this book home to keep my company while I recuperated from a sprained ankle. Had I not been immobilized, I think the book would have kept me home anyway. I couldn't put it down, and I read it from cover to cover, as I did his letters. Now, I'm reading No Man's Meat, another collection of White's thoughtful, funny, complex essays.

Of course, I loved the often anthologized ones, "Death of a Pig," and "Once More to the Lake," but I was also completely taken with "The Eye of Edna," "Bedfellows," and "The Geese." I could not stop laughing as I read "The Years of Wonder," and I think I'll never forget the comples characterization of Fred, the difficult dachsund with whom the Whites shared their lives. And, of course, E.B. himself, who is very good company. Still, after all these years!
