Representing a wide spectrum of some of our most significant modern and contemporary authors, the Vintage Readers offer an attractive, accessible sampling of writing that matters.

“Baker writes with appealing charm. . . . He clowns and shows off. . . rambles and pounces hard; he says acute things, extravagant things, terribly funny things.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
