Description - A Line Out for a Walk by Joseph Epstein
Paul Klee's words on his art, "I take a line out for a walk," describe precisely what the author of these essays does-he takes out such "lines" as gossip, gambling, height (or the lack of it), hats, smoking, fame or compulsive reading and "walks them" in his own discursive style.
