Description

"Reviewery" collects in one volume 50 pieces by a writer whom many regard as our greatest literary critic. Ricks writes compellingly about novelists (Waugh, Joyce and Henry James), about poets (Larkin and Eliot), about filmmakers (Kubrick and Coppola), sociologists (Goffman and McLuhan), photographers (Capa) and music makers. The result is an account of the cultural landscape of the 20th century.
