Reviews

What Furman has written serves as more than a mere essay on Lou Reed; it's also a consideration of how the notion of queerness has evolved over time and what Reed meant both to queer culture and to Furman as a person. In its exploration of the nature of art and the artist in its portrayal of marginalized communities, Transformer is a welcome addition to the ever-growing 33 1/3 library. * Spectrum Culture *
Rarely does longform music criticism get this personal, but Furman's willingness to be vulnerable as he excavates Transformer makes his debut book an incisive and necessary read. * Pitchfork *
...an intimate analysis... Arriving as it did, around the time of Grant Hart's death only serves to give the book deeper impact. * Palette *
