Reviews

'What unites these pieces is a mood-heavy, autumnal, nostalgic...There is stirring, beautifully structured writing here, particularly in the title essay, a profile of Fisher, which combines many of the writer's signal interests-our unconscious aggression and the way we methodically and unknowingly recreate the world of our childhood in our adult lives.' * New York Times *
`She is among the most intellectually provocative of authors, able to turn epiphanies of perception into explosions of insight.' * Boston Globe *
`Janet Malcolm...remains a ruthless, dazzling journalist.' * Guardian *
`[R]uthlessly artful...[H]er magazine profiles of noted personalities are peerless when it comes to unraveling what makes people tick. She'll deliver the factual goods with brisk efficiency, while happily leaving mysteries in place.' * Seattle Times *
'Every word of Janet Malcolm's latest nonfiction collection, Nobody's Looking at You, is a pleasure to read, even if you have no built-in interest in her topics. The author of The Journalist and the Murderer comes off like a proponent of the 'Life is short, eat dessert first' philosophy, placing her snappiest pieces in the first section...[The essays] show off Malcolm's way with quick, vivid word pictures...and her gift for the telling detail...[and] reveal the breadth of Malcolm's wit and insight[.]' * Star Tribune *
'Malcolm brings [the] same moral seriousness to every topic she addresses...[H]er calm, brilliant essays are the perfect tonic for our troubled times.' * Associated Press *
`Malcolm's work inspires the best kind of disquiet in a reader-the obligation to think.' * Jeffrey Toobin *
`A legendary journalist.' * Laura Miller *
'Nobody's Looking At You is brimful of all the eloquence, erudition and insight a thoughtful reader could want.' * NPR *
`If Malcolm's stories were items of clothing, then you would scarcely be able to see the stitching. So seamless and well-structured are they that the research and hours and effort that must have occurred behind the scenes are virtually undetectable. Nobody's Looking at You is an enlightening, rewarding read from one of the greats.' * Good Reading Magazine (4/5 stars) *
'If there were a title for Grand Master of narrative non-fiction then the undisputed champion would be Janet Malcolm...Nobody's Looking at You is a satisfying read by an excellent writer. Malcolm's perspective is unique and her voice is so sharp and witty.' * AU Review *
