From the preface by John Hutchinson:
"I am convinced that a substantial proportion of our cultural and aesthetic tastes are rooted in key events that were enjoyed or suffered in early adult life, and that it serves us well to become conscious of this. I have no doubt, for instance, that the choice of exhibitions and other events that have taken place at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in recent years have often been unconsciously guided by, and measured against, my memories and recollections of the art, writing and music that most touched me when I was reaching some degree of maturity"
This book in the Leaves & Papers series contains several short essays on subjects as diverse as 'Withnail and I', George Harrison and Eric Clapton, Rabindranath Tagore, Hermann Hesse, and Krishnamurti.
