A wonderfully refreshing collection of essays/reviews on the lively arts
Whether writing on films, TV, music, books, or comedy, Giddins displays in this volume an impressive perspective and depth of knowledge about his subject matter. Within this compendium, the author gives thoughtful discussion to an array of diverse topics: ranging from Jerry Lewis's artistic standing to an evaluation of a Doris Day DVD collection, to a nostalgic discussion of the Modern Library book series, to the impact (or lack thereof)of the Frank Sinatra TV miniseries produced by the crooner's daughter. Giddins is proof that a critic/reviewer/essayist can be astute, articulate, amusing, and exceedingly informative. A great read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
