Apologies to Rachel Carson and Louis Agassiz

…Or at least to the authors of their new biographies. They’ve been bumped down on my reading list by the publication of The Lives of Erich Fromm: Love’s Prophet.

For those in the Boston area, there will be a talk by the author, Lawrence J. Friedman, at Harvard Book Store this coming Tuesday (March 5) at 7:00 PM.

In related news, the Kindle version of Fromm’s The Art of Being recently became available.

I wouldn’t recommend beginning with this one, but it’s a fine accompaniment to To Have or To Be?.
