About the Author:

Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in 1888 in St. Louis, Missouri, and became a British subject in 1927. The acclaimed poet of The Waste Land, Four Quartets, and Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, among numerous other poems, prose, and works of drama, won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948. T.S. Eliot died in 1965 in London, England, and is buried in Westminster Abbey.

Review:

"We sometimes hear it said of an iconoclastic essayist like Mark Twain or Russell Baker that he is a 'national treasure.' I vote to include Barbara Holland in this treasure chest."-The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Though Holland obviously means what she writes, she also is having good fun, not merely mourning and celebrating what has been lost but also taking well-aimed whacks at inviting targets."-The Washington Post
