The Seven Deadly Virtues (Templeton, $24.95), edited by Jonathan V. Last. While this is professedly a volume of comic essays by 18 conservative writers, even a hard-core lefty would enjoy Joe Queenan on thrift, Christopher Buckley on perseverance, Rita Koganzon on honesty, Mollie Hemingway on charity, James Lileks on hoarding and similar match-ups, starting with an introductory piece on the “The Seven Deadly Virtues and the New York Times” by P.J. O’Rourke.
Who the heck is Jonathan Y. Last?
