Product Details

Praise

“[Michael Sorkin] is brave, principled, highly informed, and fiercely funny. Read him and laugh; read him and weep; but read him, to see why the ’80s were so bad for American building”—Robert Hughes

“Michael Sorkin is the Lenny Bruce of American architecture: satirist, moralist, agent provocateur … .His courageous, outrageous and often hilarious insights into the architectural culture of our times are expressed with antic brilliance and deep conviction.”—House and Garden

“To read Sorkin is to discover a genuine love of urbanism’s best offerings and a humanistically rooted disdain for the greedy and opportunistic types who view the city as a deregulated zone for plundering.”—Chicago Tribune

“… a formidable opponent of the banal, the ugly, the stupid and the vapidly posturing which, he argues, are all around us … a punchy, provocative collection.”—Publishers Weekly

“A thorn in the flesh of America’s more complacent architects—especially the postmodernists—Sorkin proves that it’s possible to write with wit, passion and insight about architecture.”—The Guardian (London)

“Michael Sorkin’s brand of writing … is to thoughtful criticism what the Ayatollah Khomeini is to religious tolerance …”—Paul Goldberger
