Reviews

A hearty rejuvenation of the experience of visual art in our lives. -DoubleTake

"What matters is this: that, despite being dissected and loved, the particular artwork under review retains its mystery while further deepening the mystery we call the collective experience of living." -Hilton Als, from the Foreword

"A delight to read. . . . It is the kind of book that lingers with the reader because the essayists are so easy to identify with and because they summarize timeless art-related concerns. As has been said of many films, 'I laughed, I cried.'" -Susan Olcott, Library Journal
