Product Details

Praise

“Harold Bloom was one of the leading critics of his generation, and there is no question about his erudition. It is on full display.”
—Washington Post

The Bright Book of Life is the reflection of a lifetime of reading from a great, deep, exhaustive reader of novels.”
The New York Journal of Books

“Elegant and insightful. . . . With loquacious reflection made palatable by thoughtful, meaty prose—underscored by lengthy excerpts from each title—Bloom makes the case for why these timeless works of fiction remain important and powerful.”
—Shelf Awareness

“Fresh insights and renewed joys . . . fervent . . . dedicated . . . [Bloom] candidly analyzes what he considers a novel’s shortcomings and where he differs with other critics’ assessments. [His] ardent celebration of novels is tinged with the inevitable losses of old age. . . . Warm recollections of a singular literary life.”
—Kirkus Reviews
