How To Write a Sentence: and How to Read One by Stanley Fish Stanley Fish tries to throw down with E.B. White. Will lose in the long term.
The Word From Paris: Essays on the Modern French Thinkers by John Sturrock. Sturrock’s collected essays from the Times Literary Supplement and the London Review of Books. So far, so brilliant. We’re on Sartre.
