Some of Gibson’s essays have the potential to drag, but in the competent voice of Robertson Dean, this production as a whole proves enjoyable, if a bit idiosyncratic. Collected from previous published nonfiction and speeches, its contents illustrate the miscellaneous thoughts about the contemporary world that have cycled through Gibson’s mind over the years. The most rewarding parts are the self-reflections Gibson provides after each piece. This where Dean really shines with his tone and delivery, communicating the sardonic and self-deprecating regard Gibson has for his work. Dean keeps to a balanced voice in this collection despite the range of styles and purposes of the writings. He maintains a solid pace and tone that blend well with each entry.
