This year marks the 100th anniversary of Kenneth Grahame's classic, The Wind in the Willows. It is, as I've shared here before, one of my all-time favorites.
Therefore, I was interested but also a bit wary when I saw that one of Salon's resident liberals, Gary Kamiya, a fellow who can wax both poetic and peevish (and that's in the same article) had written a respectful, interesting article about the book (which he also cherishes) and its enigmatic author.
If you're also a fan of Wind in the Willows, I'm fairly certain you'll enjoy reading Kamiya's thoughtful essay. You'll find it right here.
