Description
The definitive work of Martin Gardner's brilliant career, The Night Is Large collects the most significance essays of one of America's great thinkers

"A superb volume, a mansion of a book". -- Michael Dirda, The Washington Post Book World

The seven-decade-long sweep of Martin Gardner's career is one of the most extraordinary in the history of modern American thought. Gardner began writing philosophical, literary, scientific, and mathematical articles in the late 1930s and is best known for his "Mathematical Games" column, which appeared in Scientific American for more than 25 years, and for such best-selling works as The Annotated Alice and The Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener. In The Night Is Large, Gardner has assembled 54 challenging and inquisitive essays, and created his crowning achievement -- work that places him at the heart of twentieth-century American intellectual culture.

"The Night Is Large captures the joys of being a lifelomg student". -- The New York Times Book Review
