She addresses such subjects as Tom Wolfes vendetta against modern architecture, Milan Kunderas literary experiments, and Vaclav Havels prison letters. She explores the somewhat deflated world of post-revolutionary Prague, guides us through the labyrinthine New York art world of the eighties, and takes us behind the one-way mirror of Salvador Minuchins school of family therapy.And to each subject she brings the incisive skepticism and dazzling epigrammatic style that are her hallmarks.Why dont more people write like [Malcolm]?...

She is cast from the mold of the Eastern European intellectual: beholden to modernism. as familiar with Kunderas exile as she is with Freuds Vienna. This sensibility must grant her the detachment she sometimes so mercilessly employs, but it also gives her an unassailable passion for getting to the center of things. -Boston Globe
