BROWSINGS By Michael Dirda, Pegasus Books $24.95

I’ve only recently discovered Michael Dirda and have found his “browsings” totally diverse and entertaining, even laugh-out-loud at times. Here he has collected fifty of the weekly essays he wrote for the American Scholar, and though he is the book reviewer for the Washington Post, these are not reviews of new and current books but rather, his take on favorite authors and their classic works. He is, clearly, quite erudite in his wide range of books, fiction and non-fiction and might tempt readers to skip a current bestseller for one of his chosen favorites. 




NEW ORLEANS AT NIGHT By Keri McCaffety, Pelican Publishing $29.95

Nobody captures the magic and mystery of New Orleans in pictures better than McCaffety. She has previously authored a number of books about the Crescent City and beyond – St. Francisville, for example. In this collection, New Orleans comes alive at night much like Paris, the “City of Light.” From the Garden District to the French Quarter, to the Waterfront, her patience and creative eye make this book, beautifully bound, perfect for all well dressed coffee tables.
