"[Ghosts on the Roof] is an important contribution to history and to literature. It will do . . . much to restore the correct perspective. . . . A superb rediscovery of the artistry of a great figure."
—William F. Buckley, Jr. "The world knows Whittaker Chambers best as a philosopher and a hero of liberty. Because of Ghosts on the Roof, it will be reminded that he was also a first-rank critic, an incisive stylist, and all in all one of America's greatest journalists. Terry Teachout's valuable collection will go directly to my most easily reached bookshelf, right next to the well-worn copies of Witness and Cold Friday."
—Richard Nixon "Ghosts on the Roof is an important book. . . . Chambers writes with distinction, compassion, and authority."
—Hilton Kramer "This book is a treasure chest for admirers of Whittaker Chambers such as myself."
