Reviews

"Peter Schjeldahl is a great artist. . . . His specialty is the searching, summative essay of a few pages on a single artist. . . I know that art is only a small part of living, but it's also true that there are people whose makeshift faith lies in the best things human beings have made. Schjeldahl grants those artifacts a corresponding dignity, with all the meaning we knew they had but could not describe ourselves. It's astonishing; it astonishes."--Charles Finch "The New York Times"
"This is a rapturous read for art lovers and all who appreciate dynamic critical essays."--Charles Finch "Booklist"
"Bruce is no longer The Boss; Peter Schjeldahl is! Hot, Cold, Heavy, Light is the apex of artistic criticism and commentary."--Steve Martin "Booklist"
"The great New Yorker art critic writes like an angel about everyone from Vermeer to Picasso, Donatello to Andy Warhol, in beautiful, enjoyable, accessible essays across 30 years."--Steve Martin "Philadelphia Inquirer"
