A Line Out for A Walk
Familiar EssaysBook - 1991
Describing his art, Paul Klee once said, I take a line out for a walk. This is precisely what Joseph Epstien does in his trenchant informal essays. In this fourth collection, he takes out such wildly various lines as gossip, gambling, height (or the lack of it), hats, smoking, fame, the madness of compulsive reading and walks them on the leash of his own strong viewpoint.
