A magnificent anthology * Literary Review *
[A] fascinating volume...More than just a time capsule, this collection features journalism at its most powerful. * Compass magazine, best of this winter's books *
Superb: a gift that keeps on giving and a fine introduction to the life and letters of a supposedly (but not really) gray decade. * Kirkus Review *
