Annotation:
The memoirs of the French-born American critic, scholar, and novelist George Steiner. "Errata" is a collection of remembered thoughts on the author's personal conflicts with Judaism, music, teaching, literature, God, and other topics. Much more than biography, these memoirs serve to bring readers into direct contact with the psyche of the author.
Author Bio

Praise

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"His pleasures--he mentions a secluded house in a remote part of France--have a Midas touch; his praise stiffens them into gold. His regrets are for not having dedicated himself entirely to fiction or for spreading himself too thinly. His regrets, you feel he feels, are finer than other people's satisfactions. The virtue of this memoir, in fact, does not lie in the charm of its voice but in a brilliance that can make charm irrelevant." - Richard Eder 03/15/1998
