Praise for Thomas Mallon

A Book of One’s Own: People and Their Diaries

“It is inclusive . . . but not a bit long-winded. It is learned but never  pedantic. It is also charming, diverting, and exceptionally intelligent. The book is literary criticism, yet it is something more—a knowing, sympathetic, but not soppy commentary on humanity.”
—Naomi Bliven, The New Yorker

“Mallon, who has read hundreds of diaries, has written a marvelous book about them. It is a basket full of good things, and some of the best are his own.”
—Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times

Stolen Words: Forays into the Origins and Ravages of Plagiarism

“[T]he wonder of Stolen Words is that it remains specific and detailed yet manages to cover so much ground and blow away so much of the fog surrounding plagiarism.”
—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
