A book review from The Movie Snob.
The Ideal of Culture: Essays, by Joseph Epstein (2018). More great essays by the great essayist. I have sung his praises before, and you can read some of them here, here, and here. The down side of this volume, if it has one, is that Epstein includes several essays about lesser-known masterpieces of literature, and he’s such a good salesman that I ordered two of them online before even finishing this book.
