E.B. White on Dogs (Hardcover)
You don’t have to be a dog lover or a devotee of E. B White to delight in this collection of essays and correspondence from 1929 to 1984. Rather than being saccharine when writing about the dogs he obviously loved, or acerbic when expressing his opinions on the politics of the day, White shared astute, down-to-earth observations of his world and did so with charming—sometimes disarming—wit. From stoic yet tender remembrances of pets lost to a priceless tongue-in-cheek letter to the IRS, this is an engaging scrapbook, not to be missed.— From Staff Favorites 2016
E. B. White (1899 1985) is best known for his children's books, Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. Columnist for The New Yorker for over half a century and co-author of Strunk and White's The Elements of Style, White hit his stride as an American literary icon when he began publishing his 'One Man's Meat' columns from his saltwater farm on the coast of Maine.
