"This stellar collection is quintessential Bruccoli. His diverse interest, renowned scholarship and famously brusque wit shine from every page."—John Jakes
"This essay collection—the first to draw from Matthew Bruccoli's wide range of essays on American letters, bibliography, and publishing—shows the many facets of his deep learning. In John C. Unrue's choices and in his introduction, the process of recognizing Bruccoli's contributions to American literary study is well begun."—Linda Wagner-Martin
"Congratulations to John Unrue for bringing together essays on various topics by one of the most distinguished literary scholars of his generation. Matthew J. Bruccoli's comments on books, publishing, libraries, and, especially, F. Scott Fitzgerald, represent a catholicity of knowledge and experience that few now possess, and others have rarely matched."—Joel Myerson
