Mary Ann’s August Recommendation

In a Cardboard Belt! : essays personal, literary and savage by Joseph Epstein

Topical , witty, often humorous essays  from the erudite Epstein, former Northwestern University professor and American Scholar editor.  Many essays have a Chicago perspective.  Some are high-brow critiques of writers .

Observing academia, movies, and aspects of American culture inspires Epstein to be  cantankerous and, as he calls himself, a “capacious gasbag.”  It’s fun to see if you agree with him.  Guess what movie’s dialogue supplies the title.
