Readers of The New Yorker have faithfully turned to Jane Kramer's Letter from Europe column since 1978. Portrait of a continent. com User, December 31, 2002. This book was published several years ago but its portraits of Europeans remains vivid and provoking. Even though it's out of print (shame on the publisher!), this remains one of the best examples of literary journalism, and a valuable travel reader for anyone visiting Europe.

Before joining the magazine, Kramer was a staff writer for the Village Voice; her first book, Off Washington Square, is a collection of her articles from that paper. She has published two collections of essays from The New Yorker, Allen Ginsberg in America, (1969) and Honor to the Bride, (1970), which was based on her experiences in Morocco in the late nineteen-sixties. Since 1970, most of Kramer’s work for the magazine has covered various aspects of European culture, politics, and social history.

A notable exception to Kramer’s European reporting was her Profile, from 1977, of the pseudonymous Texan Henry Blanton.

  • Fast Lovebird
Excellent writing. Very interesting.
  • Exellent
This book greatly enhanced my understanding of European history, their psyche and mind sets. I thought I was well versed in history and recent events until I read this Jane Kramer work. She lived/lives in France primarily in the midst of many of her very interesting, factual short stories. Surprisingly, she shows no favorable deference towards the French.
  • Scream_I LOVE YOU
Great contemporary insights, probably for now & for that era accurate if stereotypical.
