Reviews

  1. James Wolcott, Vanity Fair

    “A one-man commando squad and independent operator, Marvin Mudrick was the most maverick literary critic of his time and ours—ferocious, funny, and fearlessly honest.”

  2. William H. Pritchard

    “What you finally come away from Mudrick wanting to do is read or re-read the books he talks about, and anybody who thinks this experience a common one hasn’t read much literary criticism recently.”
