Many of these essays were composed âunder the influenceâ of the subject at hand. Fadiman ingests a shocking amount of ice cream and divulges her passion for HÃ¤agen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip and her brotherâs homemade Liquid Nitrogen KahlÃºa Coffee (recipe included); she sustains a terrific caffeine buzz while recounting Balzacâs coffee addiction; and she stays up till dawn to write about being a night owl, examining the rhythms of our circadian clocks and sharing such insomnia cures as her fatherâs nocturnal word games and Lewis Carrollâs mathematical puzzles. At Large and At Small is a brilliant and delightful collection of essays that harkens a revival of a long-cherished genre.

About: In At Large and At Small, Anne Fadiman returns to one of her favorite genres, the familiar essay―a beloved and hallowed literary tradition recognized for both its intellectual breadth and its miniaturist focus on everyday experiences.
