A page-turner ... I haven't read a critical book with such
eagerness to find out what happens next for a long time.
Beautifully produced and translated, a book every poetry lover will
want to have in his pocket to read on bus, train, and plane.
-Gabriel Josipovici, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
Meillassoux has added a crucial dimension nobody ever noticed despite innumerable "close readings." -Daniel Birnbaum, Artforum
