Reviews

"Ambitious . . . [An] impressive roster [of contributors] . . . Contains challenging ideas and questions for those who want to pursue the topic in depth." --Publishers Weekly

"Peacock has compiled a series of essays about privacy and the modern world from literary figures such as Jonathan Franzen, Dorothy Allison, and Kathleen Norris, as well as from Barbara Feldon (Get Smart's Agent 99) and former prison inmate Evans D. Hopkins. Written in a literary, narrative style, these essays offer several insights into the state of privacy today." --Library Journal

"The Private I makes a useful, provocative, and lasting connection between literature and modern life." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A worthy troupe of articulate contributors provocatively illuminate diverse aspects of our contradictory feelings about protecting and voilating privacy." --Booklist
