Anne Fadiman

At Large and at Small
  • At Large and at Small

  • Butterflies, ice-cream, writing at night, playing word games...in this witty, intimate and delicious book Anne Fadiman ruminates on her passions, both literary and everyday. From mourning the demise of letter-writing to revealing a monumental crush on Charles Lamb, from Balzac's coffee addiction to making ice-cream from Liquid Nitrogen, she draws us into a world of hedonistic pleasures and literary delights. This is the perfect book for life's ardent obsessives.

Anne Fadiman is the Francis Writer-in-Residence at Yale. She is the author of Ex Libris and The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down (recipient of a National Book Critics Circle Award).
