New English Review Press is pleased to announce the publication of our nineteenth book and fourth by Theodore Dalymple, Out Into The Beautiful World.
In the little essays that follow, I have no grand theory to prove, no single message to convey. Small things and slight occurrences have caught my attention and caused me to reflect a little. I hope only to please the reader.
— Theodore Dalrymple
In his modest claim to have no grand theory or single message, Theodore Dalrymple echoes the great essayist Michel de Montaigne—whom he resembles in wisdom, wit, felicity of prose, and insatiable curiosity, as well.
— Myron Magnet, author of The Founders at Home and editor-at-large of City Journal
This is a constantly engaging and humorous collection of the always informative and original observations of one of the most elegant and erudite contemporary writers in the English language.
— Conrad Black, author of Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedom, Richard M. Nixon: A Life in Full, A Matter of Principle, Flight of the Eagle: The Grand Strategies That Brought America from Colonial Dependence to World Leadership and Rise To Greatness: A History of Canada from the Vikings to the Present
Theodore Dalrymple has done something that all the severe literary critics had decreed impossible. He has revived the essay. In the course of chasing his hat where it listeth, Dalrymple discovers the extraordinary multifariousness of human life from tender book inscriptions to “healthcare serial killers” and reveals all of it to us in language that is sometimes witty, sometimes tender, sometimes sharp, and always exactly right.
— John O’Sullivan, author of The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister: Three Who Changed the World and editor of Quadrant
