MEDIA REVIEWS
"Newspapers are written in a hurry by writers forever uneasy about the next deadline. Sometimes in their pages one finds a story that is an oasis of literacy and civility, where the wondrous behavior of humans is not only reported but cherished. Day in and day out, year in and year out, Jon Anderson has written such stories, which come like a gift to his readers."--Roger Ebert
"In a world where the news is often dominated by scandal and where some columnists believe that cynicism is the key to writing success, it's refreshing to read Andrson's columns about real people who possess dignity and humanity and humor."--Mary Dempsey on Books, "Network Chicago"
