What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

J.M.Tyree's monograph on Salesman for the B.F.I. [is currently on my nightstand]. I usually have one or two of these on the night stand - I can read one, usually, in a day, and then I go back and rewatch the movie. Salesman is one of my favorite documentaries of all time, so it's cool to get Tyree's perspective on it, and then go rewatch the movie.' - Patton Oswalt, interview with The New York Times
