      • bioText: E. B. White, the author of such beloved classics as Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan, was born in Mount Vernon, New York. He graduated from Cornell University in 1921 and, five or six years later, joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine, then in its infancy. He died on October 1, 1985, and was survived by his son and three grandchildren.
        Mr. White's essays have appeared in Harper's magazine, and some of his other books are: One Man's Meat, The Second Tree from the Corner, Letters of E. B. White, Essays of E. B. White, and Poems and Sketches of E. B. White. He won countless awards, including the 1971 National Medal for Literature and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which commended him for making a "substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children."
        During his lifetime, many young readers asked Mr. White if his stories were true. In a letter written to be sent to his fans, he answered, "No, they are imaginary tales . . . But real life is only one kind of life—there is also the life of the imagination."

      • content: Imagine narrator Malcolm Hillgartner sitting by a fire, pipe in hand and dogs at his feet, addressing a "gentle reader." There's a quaintness to this audio collection from the late E.B. White, now better known for CHARLOTTE'S WEB and STUART LITTLE than for the HARPER'S essays from which ONE MAN'S MEAT derives. But don't let this description of a measured reading of essays set in late 1930s-early 1940s pastoral Maine lull you into thinking there's nothing here to interest today's listener. If anything, you'll be struck repeatedly by parallels to the present. Hillgartner chose wisely: A fast-paced, contemporized narration would have undermined the writing. ONE MAN'S MEAT is an authentically preserved time capsule, packed with lessons for those who learn from history. K.W. � AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
