Reviews

"[The codpiece] had a big year: it is the subject of a slim new treatise, the color of artisanal gatorade..."--Rachel Tashjian "GQ"
"...a hilarious and erudite book"--Guy Trevay "The New York Times"
"[Michael Glover] takes us on a marvellous journey through portraits - including works by Titian, Holbein and Parmigianino - in which the codpiece is a protagonist."--Ben Luke "The Art Newspaper"
"From coy to curly-wurly, for a brief moment the codpiece was inescapable, in life and in art..."--Staff "The Daily Telegraph"
"hard to resist"--Staff "The Tablet"
"Glover looks for clues in the litany of codpieces jutting from Renaissance paintings, leading a perceptive tour of the nether regions."--Dan Piepenbring "The New Yorker"
