Nelson, who is also a poet, is such a graceful writer that I . . . just sat back and enjoyed the show.—Laura Kipnis, New York Times Book Review, front-page review[Nelson’s] critiques of individual artists are delightfully fierce without being mean spirited. . . . Fascinating and bracingly intelligent. . . . The Art of Cruelty’s prose is often -gorgeous.—Troy Jollimore, Boston GlobeA lean-forward experience, and in its most transcendent moments, reading it can feel like having the best conversation of your life.—Rachel Syme, NPR BooksI hope that critics, and aspiring critics, and those who are interested in the relationship between art and ethics, read [The Art of Cruelty].—Susie Linfield, New Republic/The Book
