Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the English speaking world's best essayists gives unique and insightful reflections on four of the greatest American novelists. In the process he shows that real comedy is a Christian virtue. Only Christians have the basis for celebrating the comedic nature of creation.

There are good reasons why this masterpiece has gone through multiple printings. It is as if Ralph Wood was channeling G K Chesterton, but with sharper theological powers.

A delight from beginning to end, and a devasting rebuke to those Christians, Left and Right, with humorless souls.
