A vast, wonderful company. Michael Foot,The Observer, From the thousands of essays and pieces available nobody would choose the same...but I doubt if anyone would have chosen better Frank Kermode,Independent on Sunday The selection has nothing in it that is not of the top class...John Gross has the shrewdest possible eye for what practitioners in the genre can do best with a sense of form and culture, of humour and balance...Every essay here is a pleasure to read. John Bayley, Times Literary Supplement John Gross's achievement is to see the essay as an essentially modern medium which addresses us as directly and potently as the newspaper.
