THE BEST by Peter & Leonard Ross Passell


Email this review


De choix -- the best of almost everything following the aesthetic dictates of two witty, civilized know-it-alls which will direct you to the best U.S. wine (Finger Lakes, N.Y.) bed sheets (Porhault -- sleep on an uneasy 400 dollars) college at Oxford (Magdalen) cookbook (Pellaprat) horror movie (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) house plant (to have or forget about) meal in Israel (fresh fruit) movie critic (John Simon) seven letter Scrabble word (jonquil) or best defined job in government (""Administrative Assistant to the Assistant Administrator for Administration, Agency for International Development""). Once you start it's as infallibly irresistible as that next peanut (more likely in these circles a macadamia nut).
