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
most of these essays is dazzling, the anecdotes and insights even more so. It is a superb collection of vignettes, and their variety throws more light on the diversity and possibilities than a treatise could.'' --The Financial Times ''Robert B. Silvers and Barbara Epstein co-editedThe New York Review of Booksfor 43 years, until Epstein died in June. Over those decades, contributors to the review have written about their personal relationships, and this volume brings together 27 memoirs of friendship. This volume should be read piece by marvelous piece: Robert Oppenheimer on Delmore Schwartz, Saul Bellow on John Cheever, Susan Sontag on Paul Goodman.'' --The Chicago Tribune ''A touch of sadness clings toThe Company They Kept, an otherwise joyous collection of essays by some of the world's best writers, in which they recount 'unforgettable friendships' they've been blessed with. The sadness stems from the fact that this would appear to be the last book project that Robert B. Silvers and Barbara Epstein worked on. All of the writing in the collection first appeared inThe New York Review of Books, which the two edited together for 43 years, right up until Epstein's death last June. The book, issued by their journal's publishing unit, New York Review Books, is an appropriate tribute to this long collaboration, as the volume hums with the thrill of friendship, which clearly imbued their work relations with a special quality.'' --Jewish Exponent ''
