Cigarettes are Sublime by Richard Klein
Book DescriptionCigarettes are bad for you; that is why they are so good. With its origins in the author's urgent desire to stop smoking, "Cigarettes Are Sublime" offers a provocative look at the literary, philosophical, and cultural history of smoking. Richard Klein focuses on the dark beauty, negative pleasures, and exacting benefits attached to tobacco use and to cigarettes in particular. His appreciation of paradox and playful use of hyperbole lead the way on this aptly ambivalent romp through the cigarette in war, movies (the "Humphrey Bogart cigarette"), literature, poetry, and the reflections of Sartre to show that cigarettes are a mixed blessing, precisely sublime.
