Reviews

"His richest, funniest, most heartfelt work yet, packed with erudition and brimming with an elegant originality of mind. . . . An informative joy to read." --The Seattle Times "A smart and amusing inquiry. . . . Thick with social history and as funny as [it is] acute." -- The Boston Globe"A typically de Bottonesque romp. . . . Full of great. . . literary and philosophical references." --The Christian Science Monitor"His insights float on a kind light irony. . . like pixilated Barthes. . . . The pleasures of his prose come from following the play of his mind, the vast erudition, the succinct paraphrases, and vivid, often lyrical physical descriptions." -- Boston Phoenix
