E.B. White Biography

James writes:  “I just read ‘The Story of Charlotte’s Web: E. B. White’s Eccentric Life in Nature and the Birth of An American Classic.’  Written by Michael Sims, it’s a terrific biography of the man who, as a warming up exercise, also wrote ‘Stuart Little.’ White was a writer for The New Yorker; I never knew he wrote the caption for that famous cartoon of a little girl who, when her mother tells her, ‘It’s broccoli dear,” replies, ‘I say it’s spinach and I say the hell with it.’ Definitely a book worth checking out.”

There’s more information about the book on Goodreads.
