Here's proof E. B. White had to work for a living. 26 mai 2000
Par M. Apsey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"Writings from the New Yorker" is a poorly organized commercial re-packaging of E. B. White snippets banged-out under the pressures of deadlines in the work-a-day world. In spite of my respect for the man and my love of his more carefully crafted writings, this book sputtered and stalled as I read along.
But E. B. White does manage to shine through this collection in spite of its hodge-podginess and your reward for plowing through it will be the discovery of a gem here and there.
Were he still with us, White himself would likely have a field day editing this book, tossing out stuff. For one thing, his editors made him use "we" instead of "I" in these unsigned pieces which he objected to and which makes you wonder just how "handcuffed" he was in other unspoken ways as he wrote them.
If you're an E. B. White groupie who simply must read everything White has ever written, buy this book. Otherwise--save your money.

An odd collection of White's mediocre, dated, small pieces 17 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I can't think of a book or collection of EB White's writing to which I wouldn't give high praise. Here, the writing is good (of course, it always is) but that the collection was put together by someone not in the writer's family or intimate (editorial) circle may explain why it seems a bit void of that quintessential EB White spirit. Understand, these are not essays or letters. These, for the most part, are very short pieces, most of which ran in The New Yorker as short, witty fillers or, as that genteel set liked to refer to them, "occasionals." Some, because they were written many decades ago ('30s and '40s) are dated. Some references or phrases are left unexplained, leaving this reader stumped. If you want to read classic EB White, aside form his children's classics, I recommend his "Essays" and "Letters," and "The Second Tree from the Corner." THESE are classics. This collection, on the other hand, demonstrates that, while EB White was always a top-notch writer, even the best have their mediocre days.

In response to the negative reviews 1 octobre 2012
Par A fellow with a keyboard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I agree with other reviewers that this is not the destination for E.B. White's best writing. But what's getting lost in the negative reviews is that even E.B. White's second tier writing still has the ability to shake and inspire as well as about anyone who has used the language.

If this is your first foray into E.B. White, I recommend starting with his essays. If not, then don't let the negative reviews on this page discourage you.

Writings from The New Yorker by E. B. White 23 février 2007
Par N. J. Parker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I intend to have the very first item in this read at my memorial service - which I hope won't be soon! Some of this was slightly dated, but always good reading. He had such a unique take on his world and such a down-to-earth way of looking at the goings-on around him.

A must read if you are interested in writing (I'm a Mystery Writer--latest--Cliffs of Portofino) 2 février 2013
Par Thomas and Karen Donahue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
E. B. White takes the reader on a historical journey with elegant words and phrases. Like a waltz across the ballroom floor, he weaves and floats above the rest. I'm on my third reading of it and find a newness with each pass.
