The Comfort (and Challenge) of Wind in the Willows

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.
