MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ingenious and idiosyncratic . . . a work that somehow manages to be both a prose poem about the pleasures and distractions of movie-watching and an extremely compact history of the cinema." -- Louis Menand - The New Yorker
"One of the most eccentrically engaging books to come out all year. . . . The Phantom Empire is an elegy for reality, the screenplay of a celluloid culture." -- Voice Literary Supplement
