In this passionate and provocative collection, the brilliant Simon Schama reveals his lighter, more playful side as he brings his keen critical sensibility to a wide range of topics. Captivating and informative, Scribble, Scribble, Scribble captures Schama's wit and acute observations as he holds forth on everything from food and family to Winston Churchill, Martin Scorsese, and Richard Avedon, from Rubens to Rembrandt, from his travels in Brazil and Amsterdam to sailing on the Queen Mary 2.Never predictable, always stimulating, Scribble, Scribble, Scribble is a treasure trove of surprises that highlight Schama's sense of humor, curiosity, and idiosyncrasies, allowing us to view the world, in all its diversity, through the eyes of one of its most intelligent, witty, and original inhabitants.
