Reviews

A treasure of Walt unvarnished, reflective and still firing on all cylinders into his 70s. From single sentences to long paragraphs, it is endlessly quotable and perfect for dipping into and savouring. --The Guardian

Brenda Wineapple's pithy volume, in its bare-bones efficiency, allows us to appreciate ... the best of Whitman's off-the-cuff remarks. --Christoph Irmscher, The Wall Street Journal This little book samples his rambling chats with friend Traubel in the last years of Whitman's life. It's uplifting, invigorating, full of American talk. And a great read any season. --Philadelphia Inquirer
