I was in need of essays, preferably general essays that deal with all sorts of topics. Smith's collection was a good choice. Unsurprisingly, I liked the literary essays (Nabokov!) the most, but I also enjoyed reading on film, language and Smith's own family. Inspiring stuff, on a high level, but still readable. Want White Teeth next, I think.
