By the Book: Bibliography - William Strunk Jr and E.B. White

Dorothy Parker once wrote: “If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second-greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of 'The Elements of Style. The first-greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they're happy.” In this episode of Bibliography, we talk about the book that's shaped generations of authors, and then dive into the works of E.B. White, whose career spanned articles for the New Yorker, as well as beloved childhood classics like Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web. And then in Footnotes, as always, we discuss adaptations of these works.
