Leon Hale

Leon Hale reaffirms his reputation as a master of the short personal essay. Once again, these are stories of common experience transformed into little treasures of human observation told in the graceful conversational prose that has become Hale's hallmark. As a special treat, readers will also find several favorites from books that are no longer in print -- including "The Chamber of Commerce Bull," probably the most requested of all Hale columns. The stories gathered here offer the delight and amusement we have come to expect from this celebrated author, but most of all they remind us of the enduring value that comes from understanding with the heart the small beauties of life--a characteristic that Leon Hale has refined and transformed into art.
