There’s quite variety of contributors to this collection, so enjoyment went up and down as I read. My favorite chapter by far was the one by Gerald Early. I loved reading about Vince Guaraldi, the author’s first impressions of his music (I still need to listen to “Cast Your Fate to the Wind”) and the music he wrote for the TV specials. When I looked up Early’s bio in the back of the book, I was surprised to discover he isn’t a music writer, since he wrote so eloquently about it.
I liked the chapters drawn as comic strips and the ones that had more reminiscing than analyzing. The Jonathan Lethem poem made me want to set fire to my kindle.
I picked this up because I have fond memories about the strip and the specials, but a lot of the chapters were kind of a bummer. Written by some clearly very brainy people, but not what I was expecting. It took me a while to get through, but I’m glad I finally got to it. It does make me want to read more books about Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts, or some of the old collections again.
