Encyclopedia of the Exquisite
By Jessica Kerwin Jenkins
Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 312 pages, $27.95
Jessica Kerwin Jenkins's collection of rare and arresting facts—and these facts are "exquisite" not in the sense of being simply beautiful but in the original sense of being hard to get at—grew from a file she kept called "Why I Like It Here," with "here" meaning on the planet, not at the magazine where she worked. The book is billed as "an anecdotal history of elegant delights."
