Summary: ''Whether fond or surprisingly frank, these essays are soothing in their intimacy, their acceptance of fallible fellow humans. 'As always,' writes Robert Oppenheimer of Albert Einstein, 'the myth has its charms; but the truth is far more beautiful.''' --O Magazine ''A charming addition to a friend's bookshelf would beThe Company They Kept: Writers on Unforgettable Friendships.'' --Vogue ''An extraordinarily striking, moving and delicious collection of short essays...The writing in ...show moremost of these essays is dazzling, the anecdotes and insights even more so.
