Alistair Cooke is the microphone's great observer, the doyen of foreign correspondents and the world's most famous letter writer. Since 1946 he has been explaining the Americans through his weekly Letter From America, the longest-running one-man series in broadcasting history. It has been, and still is, a virtuoso performance: informed, informal, shrewd, funny, and erudite.

This personally selected second volume contains more memorable topics including the eight-year-old girl who started the civil rights movement, reflections on '60s counter-culture, and fascinating memories of Bing Crosby, Groucho Marx, and Duke Ellington.

Every event evokes a particular time and place, but Cooke's unique style of expression and analysis provides each with a resonance that echoes through the years.
