Reviews
"A strong and deeply personal argument about what it means to be cultured."--Mark O'Connell, "Slate"--Mark O'Connell "Slate "
"There's no incompatibility between observing the world and being tuned into an electronic, multimedia, multi-tracked, McLuhanite world . . Rock 'n' roll really changed my life. I think rock 'n' roll is the reason I got divorced. It was Bill Haley and the Comets, Chuck Berry . . . So when I go to a Patti Smith concert, I enjoy, participate, appreciate and am tuned in better because I've read Nietzche."--Susan Sontag, from the "Rolling Stone" interview--Susan Sontag, from the Rolling Stone interview
"This long and largely genial portrait of the (not always quite so genial) intellectual in middle age also amounts to a strong and deeply personal argument about what it means to be cultured."--Mark O'Connell, "Slate"--Mark O'Connell "Slate "
One of "Brainpicking's" Best Books of 2013, selected by Maria Popova.--Maria Popova "Brainpickings "
