A collection of essays by the master essayist of this country today. The title selection is autobiographical, touching briefly on highspots of her own life at ten, twenty, thirty, and so on. Terse, restrained, surprisingly revealing of a personality and individuality. The balance of the material includes critical essays, commentaries on current topics, scholarly essays on the classics, graceful essays on the passing scene. Always the master touch, a finish that most essayists lack, humor, subtlety, charm.
