Description: In nineteen opulent, brilliant essays, Ozick probes Dostoyevsky for insights into the Unabomber, questions the role of the public intellectual, and dares to wonder what poetry is. She offers an exquisite reminiscence of her parents' Bronx pharmacy, roams effortlessly from Franz Kafka to Henry James, William Styron to Gertrude Stein, and, in the book's most famous essay, dissects the gaudy commercialism that has reduced Anne Frank to "usable good." Courageous, spirited, and sublime, these essays have the strength of conviction, the probing of genius, and the durable audacity to matter.
