Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"In a broad-ranging collection of essays on mathematics, theoretical physics, philosophy, literature, and religion, Gardner has a panoramic view from the shoulders of such giants as Einstein, William James, and L. Frank Baum....If Newton was, as he said, like a boy playing on the seashore of an undiscovered ocean of truth, then Gardner too has amassed an impressive shell collection."

Kirkus, 05/01/1996

Review:

"'The Night is Large' is a representative sampling of this mathematical magpie's essays...It's a superb volume, a mansion of a book in which one can live happily for a month or visit for a quarter-hour."

Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 07/14/1996
