Book Description
Butterflies, ice-cream, writing at night, playing word this witty, intimate and delicious book Anne Fadiman ruminates on her passions, both literary and everyday. From mourning the demise of letter-writing to revealing a monumental crush on Charles Lamb, from Balzac's coffee addiction to making ice-cream from Liquid Nitrogen, she draws us into a world of hedonistic pleasures and literary delights. This is the perfect book for life's ardent obsessives.

    Anne Fadiman很能代表那一派“今之古人”式文人,堅守英式散文傳統,樂於懷古,引經據典,情理兼顧,以紳士式幽默和從容娓娓道來。

    我讀過兩本Anne Fadiman,一為Ex Libris,一為At Large and at Small。前者各篇皆與讀書,購書和藏書有關。後者所收篇目較雜,有一如既往的軟題目(雪糕,搬家),也有較嚴肅的文字(國旗的意義)。

    Anne Fadiman不是我杯茶。上述兩書,以Ex Libris的書話較能引起我的興趣。
