Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Some of the finest examples of contemporary, genuinely American prose. White’s style incorporates eloquence without affection, profundity without pomposity, and wit without frivolity or hostility.” Washington Post
“Malcolm Hillgartner is the perfect narrator for this magnificent display of White’s restrained literary style…Hillgartner’s smooth, cultured baritone and practiced delivery allow us to yearn unselfconsciously for the past. He seems as at home with White’s homage to Walden as he is with White’s heartfelt farewell to the Ford Model T. He conveys embarrassment in recounting White’s boyish adventures and earnestness in imparting the wisdom of age. Great listening.” AudioFile
