My Mistake. His sentences are composed perfectly in what appears effortless. Always choosing just the right word (which I appreciated even more with the half dozen I looked up), Menaker offers a light touch that kept me engaged and entertained from beginning to end. He finds a way to be witty even when discussing illness and death. His introspection comes across as self-deprecating as reflected in the title. Having spent decades working at The New Yorker then at publishing houses, Menaker offers a front row view of aspects of life in literary New York. I found his eloquence delightful to read.
