Persons and Places: The Background of My Life Santayana, G. 1963

From Amazon
In this fascinating autobiographical volume, George Santayana, famous philosopher, and author of The Last Puritan, brings together this background to give a charming yet profound picture of the various people and places that formed his character and made him the man he was. This is a book of truly rare charm. Its luminous style, incisive humor, and mellow wisdom make it not only a most distinguished and delightful addition to Santayana’s books, but also one of the most beautiful autobiographies ever written.
