Reviews

"Truly original. . . . A whole narrative of intensely felt and observed moments. . . . After reading it, life seems larger." --John Berger, Harper's Magazine

"An ingenious journey through the history of photography." --Art Review

"Dyer has the naturally generous impulse of a great storyteller." --The Boston Globe

"A masterful meditation. . . in which great, often melancholy themes are raised with lightness and very dry humor." --Alain de Botton, Books of the Year, The Observer (London)

"Surprising. . . . [Dyer] pulls off a string of shrewd, often original ideas about a group of artists whose work had until now seemed thoroughly digested." --The New York Times Book Review
