The author, journalist daughter of grand old man of 20th century American letters Clifton Fadiman, wrote this series of essays about books and reading for "Civilization" magazine. The pieces are charming, erudite, warm, and funny, and include her thoughts about marrying her personal library with that of her husband, compulsive proofreaders, the love of fancy words, how to treat (and not to mistreat) a book, offbeat reading tastes, plagiarism, and the joys of perusing mail-order catalogs. Short and delightful.
