“Good essays essay interminably.... They keep thinking, keep sorting through their stimuli, keep uncovering and echoing meaning.

The book combines many of the best essays from Essay Daily with original pieces, all of which serve as an inspirational showcase for the potential range and elasticity of the personal essay form.
