Metaphysical Club

Although I'd doubtless run across his writing in The New Yorker from time to time over the years, I only became conscious of Louis Menand when Diane Greco declared her love for his work in her weblog last year. I've just finished his brilliant intellectual history, The Metaphysical Club. It's superb. (More on the new Spring books page)

I have a Tinderbox agent that collects all my notes my Menand's writing, from this latest review to his brilliant analysis of the psychological depths of The Cat In The Hat.
