A lovely collection of thought-provoking vignettes,
This review is from: The Mystery of Things (Paperback)
As with Graylings other collections of thoughts, this is a lovely collection of vignettes.
Most articles run to 2-3 pages, giving enough introduction to understand the topic, and appreciate the observations being presented.
There are 3 themes : Arts (23 articles), History (14 articles) and Science (18 articles)
The topics are many & varied, my favourites ranged across :
Art : from Modern Architecture to Shakespeare;
History : from Heritage to the English Revolution;
Science : from Knowledge to Alien Abductions.
Another cherished volume to join the Grayling collection.
