"Appropriately, 'virtuality' does not exist in my Spell Check, though no other concept so haunts contemporary art, media, and life. In his rich, lucid examination of 'the reality effect, ' Joel Black describes the inroads made in our sense of the world by the ambiguities of representation."
-Wendy Steiner, author of "Venus in Exile
"Joel Black must now stand as one of America's top cultural critics. The Reality Effect moves effortlessly between the highbrow theory of Freud and Lacan and the low, low genres of pornography and snuff films, providing dazzling insights into such promoters of the 'graphic imperative' as Oliver Stone, Brian De Palma, Abe Zapruder and Reality TV along the way."
-Steven Jay Schneider, New York University
