A glorious grab-bag stuffed with necessary loot, a joyful plum pudding rich in treasures -- Margaret Atwood * * Los Angeles Times * *
His big ideas are seriously good ones * * Guardian * *
An act of pure pleasure from first to last -- Michael Chabon
Hyde is one of our true superstars of non-fiction . . . Both brilliant (intellectually, literarily) and wise (psychologically, spiritually, you-name-itally) -- David Foster Wallace
Lewis Hyde's second masterpiece -- Margaret Atwood
A masterpiece . . . The thrilling thing about reading non-fiction such as Hyde's is not just that it gives you new thoughts: it also changes the way you think * * Scotland on Sunday * *
Brilliant...By the time he is done he has folded language, culture, and the very habit of being human into his ken * * The New Yorker * *
Hyde is far more than an astute cultural critic; he's an original and important thinker. Pass it on -- Geoff Dyer
