It isn’t all sweetness and light, thanks to harsh words about Margaret Thatcher, governmental surveillance, and the invasion of Iraq, but the author seems more at home opining on such topics as why Macbeth is “the most interesting murderer in literature.” A delightful and argute collection from a talented stylist.
