Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This sampler, complete with comments, is read by White's son Joel (who died in 1997). If nothing else, it is a listening experience that cannot be replicated. It brings together poems, letters, autobiographical notes, and fragments from essays (many of which appeared in The New Yorker or Harper's). White's writing is lightweight, the verbal equivalent of easy-listening music, further demonstrated by piano interludes. Excerpts from essays don't add any substance. And his poems (or rhymed verse) would fit better in the context of his famous children's books (most notably Charlotte's Web). The second tape is better, if only because listeners have gotten used to his style. It also includes the full text of "Once More to the Lake," a charming piece about taking his family on vacation every August. Recommended for listeners roaming the countryside on their own summer vacations.Rochelle Ratner, formerly with "Soho Weekly News," New York
