“Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them...I find them hard to stop reading.” ( New York Times)
“Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise.” ( Wall Street Journal)
“Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character... I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization.” ( Boston Globe)

Witty, accessible and fun

Keeble is a superb narrator and guide into a great world of the patron Saint of existentialism. It was over all too soon.
