The Medusa and the Snail: More Notes of a Biology Watcher, by Lewis Thomas. New York: Bantam. $2.95.

More essays from the writer who won a 1974 National Book Award for "The lives of a Cell." An unbounded imagination combined with careful attention to the details of life make Thomas's writings on biology, and every other topic, as lively and valuable as discovery itself.
