Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Notes from Hampstead is a map of the late Nobel laureate's thinking, a triumphant compendium of aphoristic, enigmatic, and expository writings covering a characteristically diverse range of subjects.

Review:

"The author of the classic Auto-du-Fé (1936) kept a notebook of which this volume is a record, dating from 1954 to 1971. Not only will Canetti's close readers be enthralled by the aphoristic writings on a wide range of subject; there is something here for everyone. Sometimes the observations are as enigmatic as they are enticing: 'The deceitful quality of noise.' At times they are rich in commonsense: 'You should heed your contemporaries as well. You can't get nourishment from roots alone.' This is a work that inspires contemplation." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
