Item Description...
This definitive treasury of the best of Malcolm Muggeridge is drawn from all sources: books, essays, journalism, broadcasts, scripts, diaries and letters spanning his sixty year career from 1926-1986. Some material, collected by Muggeridge in the early 1980's has never previously been published. Ian Hunter has collected short, pungent pieces chosen to exhibit the essential cast of Muggeridge's mind: his insights, wit and singular capacity to see 'with, not through' the eye. In a single volume, this is the essential wisdom of Malcolm Muggeridge, perhaps the most prophetic and individualistic thinker of his generation, standing beside G. K. Chesterton and C. S. Lewis. Ian Hunter is Professor Emeritus of Law at the University of Western Ontario. His articles and reviews have appeared in many Canadian and American publications. Dr. Hunter has also written a biography of Muggeridge (Malcolm Muggeridge: A Life) and Muggeridge's friend, Hesketh Pearson (Nothing to Repent: The Life of Heskerth Pearson).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Muggers, Once Over Lightly  Feb 1, 2004
A pessimist reading Muggeridge might become a bit more optimistic. An optimist reading MM may move somewhat the other way. But for those suffering the far more common modern malady of a nearly flatlined brainwave pattern from being inundated by dead prose, a dose of the divine Mr. M. comes as a reviving jolt of the paddles. Intoxicated by that first disorienting rush of life, one may do odd things. I named my website after reading Malcom's take on a phrase from Ecclesiastes" A living dog is better than a dead lion." Ian Hunter, having sustained a nearly fatal dose, went on to write Malcom Muggeridge: A Life, and now, the madness not yet abated, to edit 250 pages of pithy quotes and diverting anecdotes in The Very Best of Malcom Muggeridge.

Spanning 60 years of writing, these brief excerpts run from a paragraph to a page, and were gathered from newsprint, radio, TV and books. Thirteen chapters provide a rough thematic grouping and a sort of directional arrow cavorting with jaunty energy through the book. Only one caveat colors my wholehearted recommendation of this book; these short snippets may appear as overly brief and telegraphic; some of Muggeridge's more thoughtful bits take pages to get going. Nevertheless, these short bits may serve as springboards for readers into the full-length works, as an apertif whetting the appetite for the full-course meal. Following Ian Hunter's lead, new readers will hopefully press on to track down the books meantioned, the best of which, notably the two-volume Chronicles of Wasted Time, read seamlessly from start to finish.
