Praise

“Excellent. . . . A feast of rock writing, freewheelin’, funny, and deep.” —Bruce Handy, New York Times Book Review

“A vivid cross-section of a half century’s worth of American music writing. . . . Lethem and Dettmar have made their selections both rightly and righteously.” —Jack Hamilton, NewYorker.com

“There are so many hits that this smart anthology mostly feels like a dream jukebox.” —Dwight Garner, New York Times  

“Will remind you of just about everything you love about music.” —PopMatters.com

“Pop writing, at its best, doesn’t know the difference between desire and theory, which is precisely the reason for its power and its persistence. Lethem and Dettmar’s expansive anthology renders this wild, polychrome tradition, and the state of play today, with gusto.” 
Ben Ratliff, author of Every Song Ever
