Even more great press for Janet Malcolm’s Forty-One False Starts

The New York Times called Forty-One False Starts ‘a powerfully distinctive and very entertaining literary experience’.

Malcolm says, ‘I have never found anything any artist has said about his work interesting.’ I think I actually sighed with contentment when I read that sentence: finally, someone who gets it. The Chicago Tribune said Janet Malcolm is ‘a penetrating critic of personality and situation’.

The New York Observer also posted a rave, saying ‘her portraits of the storytellers, with their squirmy foibles and agendas, are glorious.’
