"This compact little book, handsomely produced, includes some enterprising choices, ranging from the Koran to Ali Smith, and concluding with an essay by P.G. Wodehouse, 'Just What I Wanted, ' that was published in Vanity Fair
in 1915 but remains perfectly apposite today." --"The Best Christmas Books of 2017," Evening Standard
"One of the best stocking-filler books of 2017." --The Guardian (UK)
