Blending memoir and literary criticism, The Unpunished Vice is a compendium of all the ways reading has shaped White's life and work. His literary friendships provide some interesting insights in to the lives of authors such as Michael Ondaatje and Joyce Carol Oates. He recalls reading Henry James to Peggy Guggenheim in her private gondola in Venice, and phone calls at eight o 'clock in the morning to Vladimir Nabokov who once said that White was his favourite American writer. Features writing that has appeared in The New York Review of Books, The Paris Review and The Times Literary Supplement.
