"...monumental... He carries the reader onwards with fine writing and enthusiasm for his material... Even without its merits, this work would probably win prizes for its timeliness." Jonathan Birchall, Financial Times "His warm and informal survey clearly conveys a pleasure and enthusiasm for the culture that hard times produced, one that could be both starkly bleak as well as startlingly beautiful." Susan Currell, The Times Higher Education Supplement "...the central paradox [this book] explores-how economic bankruptcy produced such a wealth of creativity -might give us pause for thought..." Andrew Dickson, The Guardian "His [Morris Dickstein's] book is an epic effort to draw out the common themes of a prolific decade..." Financial Times "A seasoned critic, Dickstein has done a remarkable job in Dancing in the Dark...Few books of criticism read with the narrative compulsion of a good novel, but this one does." Jay Parini Literary Review "...a substantial and illuminating account of cultural pursuits during America's Great Depression." The Jewish Chronicle "Now, thanks to the highly erudite Morris Dickstein and his well-researched book, we can reassess the cultural life of that unique decade." Diplomat MagazineRezension:
"The equivalent of a Fred and Ginger dance number ... a thrill to read."
