Okay, Okay, I may only be 14 and enjoy flat meaningless poems with attempted humor, but I thought this book was great. But, to quote Lavar Burton of Reading Rainbow, "You don't have to take my word for it!" Read it yourself!

I looked for this book after reading of President Obama quoting from E.B. White's poem, Boston is Like No Other Place in The World, Only More So, at the service for the Boston Marathon bombing victims. It is a wonderful collection of articles and poems by a wondeful author. The poem is very touching and his recollections are warm and reminds one of why we love our city. It's one of my favorite new "old" books.

knowing the quality or writers that the new yorker supported for many years, i had high expectations for white's work. it was a dissapointment. the poems were flat and fell short, and try as he did, he could not create the humor found in dorothy parker's poems. the sketches, for the most part, were meant to be humourous, but were not. there were a few good ones in the final section of the book, but if you want to read the finest that the new yorker produced, read john cheever's and dorothy parker's work.
