A book review from The Movie Snob.
Wind Sprints: Shorter Essays, by Joseph Epstein (2016). I’ve sung Epstein’s praises in this blog enough before. I just really like his writing style and observations about life, literature, and everything. The pieces in this collection, with only a couple of exceptions, are extremely short—like two pages long. Many of them, I believe, came from Epstein’s contributions to the “Casual” feature in The Weekly Standard magazine, so I had probably read many of them before. Still, it was a pleasure to read them again. If you enjoy good writing, you owe it to yourself to give Epstein a try.
