Description: "[The collection's] merit lies in Braudy's unusual and interdisciplinary perspective, as when he enthuses over the interpretive possibilities of the 18th-century epistolary novel....He is particularly lucid on the subject of film."--Library Journal "The pieces are consistently intelligent and readable."--Michigan Quarterly Review "Here is that rare thing, a collection of essays that really works. The disparate subjects ofNative Informant--film, popular culture, 18th-century literature, contemporary fiction--are held together by a personal voice, a probing, aphoristic style, and a critical sensibility that crosses borders, makes unexpected connections, and see the arts and their cultural contexts as part of a single fascinating continuum. This is a rich, stimulating, and necessary book."--Morris Dickstein,Queens College, CUNY "At a time when the humanities are in crisis, when educators in the liberal arts are bitterly debating about the proper objects of their study, it is especially refreshing to encounter Leo Braudy's intelligence about a remarkable variety of topics....A generous, curious, and democratic critic, he is keenly sensitive to the relationship between artists and audiences, and to the ever-changing, 'performed' nature of the self. Several of his essays deserve to be called classics."--James Naremore,Indiana University "Braudy doesn't stay boxed in 'English Literature' or 'Popular Culture'. Equally important, unlike a lot of interdisciplinary work done these days, Braudy's book is personal, given shape by his own unique blend of experiences rather than dictated by an ideological agenda."--Magill Book Review
