reviewed Pundits, Poets, and Wits: An Omnibus of American Newspaper Columns on
Gilbert Seldes once called the newspaper column themost sophisticated of the popular American arts. It is that and more. It is a raft ride through the white water of American opinion and thought.

In this anthology, New York Times editorial writer Karl Meyer brings together 72 of America's finest columnists. The range of voices is remarkable, from Ben Franklin; Anna Quindlen; H. L. Mencken; Mary McGrory; Milt Gross; Heywood Bround; I. F. Stone. From politics to being pregnant....the subject ranges are tremendous and fun!
