Synopsis: Epstein's lively mind explores such topics as the pleasures of work, neighborhood, and keeping a journal; lecturing, language snobbery, and the comedy of gluttony; and the mixed delights of issuing and receiving praise, friendship, and growing into middle age.

From Publishers Weekly: Epstein writes gracefully on such diverse subjects as the place of work in our lives; his pet peeves (unkempt beards, empty language, official incompetence); the sadness of used bookstores; himself as an avid sports fan; pitfalls in public speaking; and the limits of friendship. His essays deftly illuminate shadowy areas of existence often overlooked by writers, and these pieces, reprinted from the American Scholar, show Epstein to be an accomplished essayist. As a debunker of liberal verities, he is in good form even if most of the selections comprise mellow musings. Epstein not only finds Woody Allen's humor tired and predictable, but, calling himself a "language snob," he skewers Norman Mailer, Joan Didion, George Kennan and others. Clearly, Epstein weighs his experiences before setting pen to paper.
