Thirteen essays - five never before published - whose range and content amply demonstrate that he is a master of the form. Whether he is re-creating the life and times of the last empress of Rome or the last days of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; trying to overcome a lifetime's distaste for Wagner and things Wagnerian or to recall a very American boyhood in New England; following in the footsteps of Henry James as he tours France or of St. Columba as he founds the sanitary of Iona; revealing the black arts of journalism or the youthful indiscretions of an aspiring novelist in postwar Paris: in all these outings and endeavors, Friedrich probes the past - his own as well as that of all mankind - seeking moments of illumination and insight and granting, always and throughout, the enormous pleasure of discovery. Includes an Index.
