Reviews

The essence of Steiner's magic--I don't really know what else to call it--has been his singular ability to articulate and elucidate, through nuance, allusion, and a peerless precision of language, those Phoebus-rays of wisdom that lie beyond wisdom and almost always elude words.--Nick Tosches "Bookforum"
[He] seems to know most things worth knowing and is acutely perceptive and energetically serious about them all.--Jeff Simon "The Buffalo News"
A remarkably powerful writer.-- "The Christian Science Monitor"
A keenly discriminating literary mind.-- "The New York Times Book Review"
