Publisher Comments:

Letters of E. B. White touches on a wide variety of subjects, including the New Yorker editor who became the author's wife; their dachshund, Fred, with his "look of fake respectability"; and White's contemporaries, from Harold Ross and James Thurber to Groucho Marx and John Updike and, later, Senator Edmund S. Muskie and Garrison Keillor. Updated with newly released letters from 1976 to 1985, additional photographs, and a new foreword by John Updike, this unparalleled collection of letters from one of America's favorite essayists, poets, and storytellers now spans nearly a century, from 1908 to 1985.

About the Author

A legendary writer for decades at The New Yorker and the author of many books of essays, E. B. White also wrote the children's classics Stuart Little, Charlotte's Web, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He lived in New York City and Brooklin, Maine.

In our age of text and email this giant collection of letters is a most welcome reminder of a different time. A time when grammar, intellect and humor ruled the day. There is practical wisdom, joy, sorrow, pain, laughter and tears in this collection--documentation of a life fully lived. A life fully lived with time to hand write correspondence! Let's all get off the Internet and send a hand written letter today!
