Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Masterful job of bringing Seymour Krim back on stage for this triumphant curtain call. -- Tablet Magazine


"Seymour Krim? Never heard of him? Start by reading this book cover to cover. If you know Seymour Krim, this collection of ‘pieces,’ a compendium of his grand kvetches, will remind you of a true indispensable American individual.”  Regina Weinreich, American Book Review

“Nobody else wrote about status-envy and disgruntlement with the same level of honesty.” Los Angeles Times

“There is the series of remarkably penetrating essays, written out of Krim’s own experience, on what it meant, in the ’50s, to be a white boy prowling Harlem for sex and music. Today, these pieces are as wise and moving as they were on the day they were written.”  Vivian Gornick, Bookforum

“The mere presence of this book makes me happy, let alone Mark Cohen’s sympathetic editing and introductions. Krim has been out of print for too long.” Joshua Cohen, The Forward
