One Man’s Meat

$16.95

In print for fifty-five years, One Man’s Meat continues to delight readers with E.B. Whites witty, succinct observations on daily life at a Maine saltwater farm. Too personal for an almanac, too sophisticated for a domestic history, and too funny and self-doubting for a literary journal, One Mans Meat can best be described as a primer of a countryman’s lessons. A timeless recounting of experience that will never go out of style. First published in 1944, this classic collection of enduring commentaries is reissued here with a new introduction by the author.

“Angell writes of White in the foreword: ‘I think One Man’s Meat was the making of him as a writer…'”     -Publishers Weekly, July 21, 1997

“Great writing like White’s is timeless – a description that also fits Maine.” -Maine Sunday Telegram, July 19, 1998

“This remarkable body of writing stands today, after half a century, as one of the greatest books ever written…” -DownEast Magazine, December 1997
