Very interesting list. I put a couple of them on hold at the library. And I downloaded the Brennan book. We'll see if it is as interesting to me as it sounds.Thanks, Rick.
Agreed! I added several to my tbr list. I think I have that Isabel Colegate around somewhere--I'll have to look for it.
The only one that caught my interest was All the Devils are Here. Unfortunately none of the local libraries have it.
Checked on Amazon for All the Devils Are Here. Cheapest used is a paltry $364. $8 something for kindle.
We have the Maeve Brennan book, and it is a winner. But, then, I am basically a sucker for things from The New Yorker,
I've been trying to get a copy of Something to Answer For for a couple of decades. I want to read all the Booker winners before I die, and I can't get my hands on it.
Update: I'm reading the Brennan now and it's terrific. The short pieces take me back to the days when, as a subscriber I read The Talk of the Town every week (though being a west coast dweller, I often had little or no idea what it was really about). But the tone of those pieces was wonderful, and here it is. I may go straight on to E.B White.
