9780141033990: At Large and at Small: Confessions of a Literary Hedonist

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.

To those who have read her work, Anne Fadiman is the object of cultish devotion...full of warmth ( The Observer )

I relished Anne Fadiman's At Large and At Small (Spectator, Books of the Year )
