Editorial Reviews

After Just Looking (1989) and Still Looking (2005), here's a final, posthumous volume from a writer whose art criticism was as good as his fiction. The 15 essays are taken mostly from the New York Review of Books, though readers will also find "The Clarity of Things," the 2008 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities and an encompassing statement of Updike's approach to criticism. With more than 200 color illustrations to go with commentary on artists ranging from Degas to Serra. Bravo!
