The essay "My Craft" is a great meditation on writing, and a few of the early essays are great reflections on youth and living in exile. However, either through this translator's choice of essays or a matter of fact, I got the impression that Ginzburg turned bitter with age--criticizing tourists and narrowing her focus to the annoyances of city life. And the insight that seemed so natural in her youth disappears, as she gropes desperately, in a sententious style, for an adage in some of the later essays. Still, those early essays were worth reading.
