"[A] splendid ensemble of distinctive, erudite voices...This invigorating, idiosyncratic collection overwhelmed me with a sense of joy; for anyone hungering after the trials of aesthetic striving, it will prove impossible to resist." --The Boston Globe "Pithy literary musings on art, culture, politics and life selected from the Threepenny Review's Table Talk section. Featuring essays published between 1990 and 2013, the anthology emulates a gathering of critics, philosophers, writers and artists in lively conversation....While some contributions are time specific, most resonate with a universality that goes beyond their publication dates....assemblage of ideas, critical thinking and wry observations, which is itself a swell digression....An invigorating collection of passionate, spirited voices." --Kirkus "These 99 pithy gems, "released to coincide with the 35th anniversary of "The Threepenny Review" in January 2015, are thought-provoking, inspiring, humorous, and sometimes breathtaking. A superb anthology." --Booklist
