PRAISE FOR CLASSICS FOR PLEASURE"[Dirda's] impeccable standards, unbridled enthusiasm and intelligent joy at recounting elements of character, scene, author and society will attract anyone with a genuine interest in literate discoveries."San Francisco Chronicle
"Dirda is a master of the light touch--his tone is invariably cordial and measured . . . His expansiveness, his love of genre fiction like detective novels, gives his writing an approachability lacking in so much literary criticism."--The Boston Globe
