reviewed The Banana Sculptor, the Purple Lady, and the All-Night Swimmer : Hobbies, Collecting, and Other Passionate Pursuits on
Like any collection, there were some essays I found more interesting than others. I'm not really into sports, other than baseball, so the sports section wasn't appealing to me. I did enjoy the other essays, particularly Mr. Lauder, who collects postcards because they are beautiful, and the lady who bakes for the state fair. This book is good for reading in snippets; the essays are just long enough to be interesting, and short enough to read before bed.
