An American Original

The creative genious of E.B. White is a gift that has been enjoyed by both children and adults for many years.
In this collection of entertaining letters, White reaveals his concern as a family man, his work as editor of the New Yorker, and his creative process in penning his great works such as Charlotte's Web.
Here is an American original, and the impression one retains from these letters is that here was a very good man, and artist who believed that one should work to the best of one's ability.
I'ts too bad that this age of e-mail has pretty much killed the art of writing letters!
