3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Chimmy on February 3, 2015
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book costs more than $10. But the eye-strain caused by reading it could make your bills from the eye doctor skyrocket. This is not a review about the book’s content but rather, a fair (if intemperate) comment on its material form. The publisher has done Nancy a great disservice, a great disrespect, by using print almost illegible to the unaided eye.

Among recent critical theoreticians, Nancy is of a rare breed. He offers crucial interventions in contemporary politics and culture. His insights are as sharp as can be found among the major theorists read across the humanities and social sciences. Unlike many of his contemporaries, however, his style is supple, lyrical at times, and always “readable.” Nancy's writing shows that intellectually fulfilling prose need not be snootily inaccessible.

Fordham University Press, however, is another matter. It should be damned to the deepest depths of Jesuit inferno for having put out a materially unreadable book by Nancy. Identity: Fragments, Frankness is only 42 pages in length mainly because the text is typeset in miniscule letters. Reading the present edition is like reading fine print. I had to use a magnifying glass when I started reading the book. And then I gave up after the first 5 pages!

I don’t just want a refund from the publisher. I would like the book to be recalled and re-issued in larger print. Then I’ll ask for a refund.
