HASH(0x8bf9e828) out of 5 stars Partisan Criticism=Good Criticism 17 Jun. 2006
By L. Sapp - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although I tend to disagree with a lot that's in here the criticism is nevertheless quite good. If you enjoy art & cultural criticism then this is a wonderful compilation to dig into.

Excellent collection of articles by an outstanding conservative critic and a conservative philosopher-pundit. Analysis of writers, trends, follies, museums, styles, life stories, collections, and collectors. Thought- provoking, lively and entertaining no matter what your opinion is.
