I read these essays over many years when I was between books. I appreciate many of his literary criticisms, as they alerted me to some varied readings including The French Lieutenant's Woman. However, many of these writings are very dated and not as open to diversity and inclusion as I would have liked.

While most of the pieces in this collection appeared more than fifty years ago they hold up, in both style and relevance, remarkably well.

1973. This anthology has an awfully good piece by Harold Brodkey, here titled "Innocence" which it says is to be part of a forthcoming novel. It's basically all a monologue in a man's head as he is having sex with his girlfriend and trying to give her her first orgasm. They're Harvard students at the time and the man is awfully arrogant about what he thinks the woman needs or wants, but I thought it was probably a fairly good shot at what might actually go through some men's heads during sex.

The other great piece in this collection is Ralph Ellison's "Cadillac Flambe" also from a forthcoming (in 1973) novel. It concerns one man's trenchant, if futile response to a Senator's racist remarks.
