Buck-Morss has written a wonderful book. Although rigorously analytic, the book doesn’t sacrifice those qualities in Benjamin’s writing that are not reducible to method. His lyrical, hallucinatory evocation of the city as a place of dreams, myths, expectations.—Herbert Muschamp, Artforum—
Wonderfully imaginative…Like Benjamin, Buck-Morss is a surrealist explorer, her mysteries unraveled by intuition, revealed by illusion.
