White on White
Selections From the Works of E.B. WhiteStreaming Audiobook - 2015
Famous for his columns in Harper's and The New Yorker magazines, revered for his essays in One Man's Meat and The Elements of Style, and immortalized through his classic children's books Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, E. B. White and his way with words has become legendary. Moving his family to a saltwater farm in Maine in 1938, E. B. White immersed himself in his surroundings-and we are all the better for it. From the IRS to the bumblebee, White's simple insights and persistent wit shed new light on the "everyday" for his readers. Many agreed with the New York Times when it hailed E. B. White as "the finest essayist in the United States." During the last year of E. B. White's life, his son, Joel White (1931-1997) visited him daily. These bedside hours were often spent with Joel reading excerpts from E. B. White's works aloud for them to enjoy together. In White on White, Joel White reads some of their favorites including essays, letters, and poems-and his personal introductions draw the listener closer to the life of E. B. White.
