Review:

..". the delight of meeting the greatest practitioners of the oldest art in the world, of seeing them at work, appreciating their creations, and sharing in their triumphs. That is what this book does." -- New York Times

About the Author:

Wechsberg worked as a lawyer, concert violinist, cameraman, malt salesman and newspaper reporter, but he was always an epicure. His stories ran in the New Yorker from 1949 to 1975. He died in Vienna in 1983.
