In print for over fifty years, One Man’s Meat continues to delight readers with E. B. White’s witty, succinct observations on daily life at a Maine saltwater farm. Too personal for an almanac, too sophisticated for a domestic history, and too funny and self-doubting for a literary journal, One Man’s Meat can best be described as a primer of a countryman’s lessons and a timeless recounting of experience that will never go out of style.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Imagine narrator Malcolm Hillgartner sitting by a fire, pipe in hand and dogs at his feet, addressing a ‘gentle reader.’ There’s a quaintness to this audio collection from the late E. B. White…Hillgartner chose wisely: A fast-paced, contemporized narration would have undermined the writing…[in this] authentically preserved time capsule.” AudioFile
“Modest in its size and presumptions, engaging in tone.” New York Times Book Review
“Great writing like White’s is timeless—a description that also fits Maine.” Maine Sunday Telegram
“This remarkable body of writing stands today, after half a century, as one of the greatest books ever written.” DownEast
“It is a lively record of an active inquiring mind, whose sense of the ridiculous in no way impairs his appreciation of the life he lives and the people he knows…Half-farmer, half literary—he contemplates the world around him.” Kirkus Reviews

Essays anyone can enjoy

When a compilation of essays reads like chapters of a novel, one can only be in awe at the skill of this writer in making his observations and experience so acceptable to readers/listeners of all tastes. One immediately feels rewarded from the first essay on as the chronological style gives an arresting portrayal of a man that is both sweet, yet masculine in its approach. A book well worth listening to, especially with the segments being just the right length for before bed or on the road.
