This book merits a worthy position in the league table of Oxford books on Life's Great Topics. It is hard to think of anyone being displeased with it.' Eryl Lloyd Parry, Literary Review
'This anthology is like a stimulating friend - we had our disagreements but it rarely failed to keep me interested ... a valuable book' Wendy Cope, Weekend Telegraph
'there is no lack of treasure trove ... There are some poignant moments.' E.S. Turner, The European
'friendship matters in almost any life and covers a range of relationships ... You could compile another and hardly overlap with this; but, unless composed as thoughtfully, yours would not be half so stimulating ... without straining their attention span, the editors attract young browsers to minds which carry weight. Here they learn without pain that literature braces in heart and soul as well as mind.' Antony Mackenzie Smith, The Tablet
'Enright and Rawlinson have done an excellent editorial job in selection' Jane O'Grady, Financial Times
'This volume has been compiled with scholarship, appreciation, and affection.' Peter Hacket SJ, The Month, July 1991
