Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Broadway and Al Hirschfeld are as inextricably linked as Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, the Marx Brothers, or Stella and Stanley Kowalski--a Hirschfeld drawing elevates both artist and image to the status of cultural icon. The 500-plus drawings, paintings, and photographs selected for this celebratory jewel span Hirschfeld's 70-year (and counting) career and are a moveable feast of art and theater history. In addition to laudatory tributes by Mel Gussow, Arthur Miller, the one-and-only Nina, and others, Hirschfeld himself provides delightful insight and commentary on most of the drawings, dishing up annecdotes, quips, and bon mots that would have made best friend S.J. Perelman proud. For anyone who cares a whit for the theater, has ever perused the theater pages of The New York Times, or assiduously tried to find each and every hidden "Nina," this treasure-chest of Broadway booty is an unmitigated joy. -- Barry X. Miller, Austin Public Library, Texas
Leila Hadley
...[C]ontains more than 400 drawings, paintings and photographs, augmented by Hirschfeld's own joyous, illuminating and often droll commentary. -- The New York Times Book Review

Jules Feiffer
Al Hirschfeld's drawings are to caricature what Fred Astaire was to dance.
