Format: Paperback
The author is one of our great public intellectuals. These essays are deeply thought out and always incisive. He writes about poets, painters, movie stars and popular culture. The essay on Lana Turner alone would be worth the price of admission. Brilliant!

Koestenbaum is a genius. These essays are humorous, insightful, chic, authoritative but not degrading, fun, sexy, smart, unique, lovable and extremely enjoyable to read.

I found the book well-written and critically reviewed, but I personally found it too intellectual for my taste. I was hoping for personal experience rather than esoteric ramblings.
