Reviews
"These studies . . . buzz with excitement and intelligence and demonstrate what his admirers already knew, the extraordinary range of Said's intellectual interests." --Frank Kermode, London Review of Books"Brilliant. . . . This gracefully unquiet, probing and wise book [is] Said's own elegiac masterpiece of late style." --Financial Times"Fascinating and stimulating. . . . Said, as with the best writers, is someone you like to spend time with. . . . This book is a fine monument to his life and work." --The New Statesman"His critic's eye remain[s] original and compelling." --Wilson Quarterly
