Reviews

"Rachel Greenwald Smith is the cool, funny, intellectual older sister you never had. . . . This is a nuanced and thought-provoking book for our times."--Chloe Caldwell

"Rachel Greenwald Smith's On Compromise is an invigorating and blessedly defiant book, full of sharp observations and funny asides. . . . Smith is an incisive and searching critic of our culture's eagerness to sacrifice difficult goals in favor of easy compromises."--Jess Row

"On Compromise is beautifully uncompromising. Smith's prose is relentlessly perceptive, funny, and self-deprecating, without an ounce of pretension or preciousness."--Merve Emre

"Teeming with the anarchic energies of the DIY underground, yet wryly unsentimental about the complexities of complicity, Rachel Greenwald Smith's On Compromise is post-punk in all the best senses of the term."--Sara Marcus
