Reviews

"[Nossiter's] writing is always provocative and entertaining. An audacious manifesto that restores the broken bond between culture and agriculture and finds vital inspiration for contemporary filmmaking in the natural wine movement." --Kirkus Reviews

"The filmmaker and essayist Jonathan Nossiter has issued a bold and passionate call for 'a new cultural ecology.' Natural winemakers, farmers, and artists become coequals in a restoration of humanism and intellectual life that begins in the humble soil. Providing inspiring portraits of artisans who are already pointing the way forward, Cultural Insurrection is a bracing proposal for anyone in despair about the stranglehold of corporatism and celebrity on our souls and the environmental degradation of our planet." --Michael Greenberg, author of Hurry Down Sunshine

"What a firecracker of a book: a passionate, humane, wonderfully idiosyncratic call to arms that audaciously proposes the natural wine movement as a model for the insurrections our era so desperately needs, and succeeds brilliantly!" --James Lasdun, author of The Fall Guy "A luminous, surprising essay." --Le Figaro "An ambitious, erudite, and sharp book...[Nossiter] make[s] inspired connections between...wine and film, agriculture and culture." --L'Obs "An invigorating read." --Biodynamis
