MEDIA REVIEWS

'Remarkably fresh--and undoubtedly controversial. A fascinating portrait of O'Hara and his times."
"--Publishers Weekly"


"Bruccoli argues persuasively that O'Hara's lasting literary importance will come because of his genius at reproducing the way certain Americans talked and lived; because of his commitment to 'write truthfully and exactly'; because of his clarity and mastery of dialogue."
"--Boston Globe"


"O'Hara could not have asked for a better biography or biographer."
"--Library Journal"
