5.0 out of 5 stars Simply one of the best books of the century, 14 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Seven Men and Two Others (Prion humour classics) (Hardcover)
(1000 words ? I shan't be that long. Besides, my english is horrible) That Max Beerbohm's Seven Men (and Two others) should dwell again on the shelves of mainstream booksellers (you had to look for it in secondhand bookshops after the exhaustion of the Oxford University Press edition, I guess) is good news in this rather horribilis year. It is perverse and witty, it is sweet and chilly - it plays quite gently and deadly with pride, vanity, silly dreams, lies and literary hopes. A book for specialists or writers ? Not at all. Beerbohm's eye for the sorry, the sad, the ridicule and the wicked should appeal to everyone.
