A new year two-fer -- now Adam Gopnik

Lately, when I read the New Yorker, I find myself enjoying another of Adam Gopnik's essays. For example, this new one aobut Samuel Johnson "Man of Fetters" which I liked almost as much as his essay on John Stuart Mill which was great.

Apparently Gopnik is so well known that a whole blog about him is available. On the other hand, not everyone is a fan. James Wolcott is less excited. Maybe he's jealous? Or am I just too swayed by Gopnik's prose.

More later.
