Janet Maslin…a smart and incisive biography…Mr. Kellow's clear, independent view of his subject is his book's most valuable surprise…It is possible to be dazzled by the bravura authority of [Kael's] writing without remotely agreeing with her, and this biography fully captures such contradictions. Kael liked to disparage what she called "saphead objectivity." But Mr. Kellow is no saphead, and he makes objectivity a great virtue.
