Othniel Smith’s book reviews

Highly entertaining collection of stories. Stylish and amusing, if a tad bloodthirsty, with a somewhat stereotypical view of the French.

A classic work, arguing for the importance of cultural expression in advancing both our moral/spiritual and intellectual development as a species. Full of now-obscure references, but still fascinating.

A little dated in terms of its dialogue, and the First World War context, but surprisingly fast-paced and relevant.
