あらすじ・解説

E. B. White is best known for his children's books, such as Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. A columnist for the New Yorker for over half a century and coauthor of The Elements of Style, White hit his stride as an American literary icon when he began publishing his One Man's Meat columns from his saltwater farm on the coast of Maine.

In E. B. White on Dogs, his granddaughter and manager of his literary estate, Martha White, has compiled the best and funniest of her grandfather's essays, poems, and letters depicting over a dozen of his various canine companions. Included here are favorite essays such as "Two Letters, Both Open", "Bedfellows", and many others, as well as some of White's little-known notes and comment pieces covering dog shows, sled dog races, and the trials and tribulations of city canines.

This is a book for those who recognize a good sentence and a masterful turn of a phrase; for E. B. White fans looking for more from their favorite author; and for dog lovers who may not have discovered the wit, style, and compassion of this most distinguished of American essayists.

A delightful book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of letters/stories about dogs. His style of writing is delightful and so very accurate in his descriptions of the dogs and their characters. The narration was first class.

Perfect on every level

Not knowing about E B White ( though I had seen the film Charlotte’s Web) I was transported with delight by the language, by the love and respect of dogs, family and friends, the humour, the depth of political knowledge and assessment, Martha White’s editing, and finally Malcolm Hillgartner’s voice, and reading, was perfect.

For lovers of dogs, and especially of E. B. White

E. B. White's writing is perfectly suited for audio, as everything he wrote sounds as good as it looks in the page. This collection includes some of White's best essays, including Death of a Pig and Report From the East. The narrator captures his friendly, bemused tone perfectly. I note that despite its title, the book is more about White himself than about digs, though there's plenty for dog lovers.

Loved every word!

White’s stories and letters about his dogs, Maine, and New York made me wish for more. Warm, intelligent, original and funny memories.
