Does for critics what Ionesco did for rhinoceroses.
Saturday Review
. . . a darkly engaging book.
Library Journal - Library Journal
Sheed's portrait of theater critic Max Jamison, who is on the edge of burning out, garnered a National Book Award nomination in 1970. Max's work is going to hell, his wife has left him, and he tries to fill the void with numerous sexual escapades that don't seem to help. This edition contains a new afterword by the author. Also new to the series is Sheed's The Morning After and Long After, a 1971 collection of essays and reviews (ISBN 1-58579-038-9. pap. $19.95). Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
