4.0 out of 5 stars Ways of looking back, 10 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Memory Chalet (Hardcover)
Two references in reviews -the assertion of post-war prosperity, and the suggestion of "Proustian" associations of memory- prompted me to buy this book, which I immediately re-read. Tony Judt was a clearly very well-and variedly- travelled man who had a finely developed sensitivity to the surroundings in which he found himself,which made lasting and mind-broadening impressions upon him which he skillfully transposes into his essays. In this he he has demonstrated an ability to bring to the reader's attention an insight into some experiences which might easily be overlooked as being merely mundane, all the more admirable for being completed in the light of his disability, which he refers to with feeling but without self-pity. Altogether quite instructive in showing how life can be experienced-- and enjoyed.
