From the cover: “Godfrey Smith’s unique column, which has appeared on the leader page of The Sunday Times for over two years, has established an extraordinary empathy between writer and reader. When, for instance, he asked readers to name the ten most beautiful words in the language, nominations cascaded in by the hundreds from poets, novelists, politicians, headmasters and housewives. What piece of music had the highest tingle quotient — a phrase dreamed up by another reader — and again the answers came back in their hundreds. Mixed in with this running dialogue is a rich gallimaufry of sketches, interviews and anecdotes, all couched in the author’s wry and idiosyncratic style.
