So many interesting essays! The book covers everything from the beauty of a perfect tennis shot to the beauty of death to one woman's battle with her big nose. Read it!
I have a piece in this book, so, you know, my views might be tainted/favor the stellar. What do you want me to say? This book rocks and you should buy it. I want to liken it to a box of See's Candy. A box full of sweet and tasty variety. You might be partial to a certain type -- dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chewy, truffle. Your favorite might be the Bordeaux (my favorite -- please store this info for future gifts/bribes) or tend to go for the nutty. But sometimes you bite into something you aren't familiar with and think, "That was delicious -- what was it? Can I get a box of just those for Valentine's Day?" My point is, you might be an avid romance novel enthusiast but then open this book and end up delighted by an essay about tennis. Or maybe you can't get enough of Scotchmallows/poetry but end up enjoying a piece about cold sores. You see what I'm saying? Open mindedness = deliciousness. I hope you enjoy this book. I hope you read a few too many essays in one sitting, feel a little stuffed, then crave some more the next day and pace yourself knowing there's so much more to look forward to. Let me know if you get it and what you think. Bon appetite!
