Reviews

"Deborah Solomon's admirable biography illuminates the life of the man without diminishing the mystery of his art." --New York Magazine

"A principal virtue of this biography . . . is that it challenges in a very authoritative way the received idea of Cornell as merely the timorous recluse, the marginal artist of Utopia Parkway."
--James R. Mellow, New York Times Book Review

"As perfectly composed, richly nuanced and quietly surprising as one of Cornell's boxes." --Donna Seaman, Chicago Tribune

"Deborah Solomon's clear-eyed and sympathetic narrative does for [Cornell's] life what he, as an artist, did for his penny world...It is a book about Cornell I would not dare to have hoped for in our mean and deconstructionist age." --Arthur C. Danto, Art Critic, The Nation

"Fascinating reading . . . Skillfully weaving together fact, anecdote, and conjecture, Solomon brings Cornell's place in the art world and his legacy to artists of the younger generation into sharp focus." --Allison Kemmerer, Boston Book Review
