In the life of every essayist, there comes a time to gather a bunch of essays and put them between covers. And what better time than in the days before Christmas? I am old, my readers are old, and we hang out with other old people. Old people seldom need or even want Christmas presents, but we are socialized sufficiently to want to take part in the yuletide giving anyway.
