Reviews

Engaging, witty, thoughtful, clever, casual, ebullient, erudite and thoroughly modern - Spectator, on Adam GopnikGopnik's mind darts about like mercury as he tells his tale - The Times, on Adam GopnikThe distinctive brilliance of Gopnik's essays lies in his ability to pick up a subject one would never have believed possible to think deeply about then cover it in thoughts. He is truly able to see the whole world in a grain of sand - New York Times Book Review, on Adam GopnikAdam Gopnik's avid intelligence and nimble pen . . . Conscientious, scrupulously savvy - John Updike, on Adam GopnikAdam Gopnik is a dazzling talent - hilarious, winning and deft - Malcolm Gladwell, on Adam GopnikBy virtue of his exceptional observational and analytical powers, acute emotional and moral exactitude, and charmingly rueful sense of humor, he turns in a riveting and incandescent chronicle of personal evolution vividly set within the ever-morphing, cocaine-stoked crucible of ferocious ambition that was 1980s Manhattan . . . Arabesque, captivating, self-deprecating, and affecting, Gopnik's cultural and intimate reflections, in league with those of Alfred Kazin and Joan Didion, are rich in surprising moments and delving perceptions into chance, creativity, character, style, conviction, hard work, and love. - Booklist
