Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The author weaves together past and present and family legend as he shares his personal story of dealing with depression, and his search through his family's paternal lines to find clues to his melancholy.


Review:

"[T]he opening chapters of this memoir evince...an energetic love of language and an eye for social detail....About halfway through, however, the book begins a steep nose dive. We come to realize that Mr. Moody has been slyly withholding information from us, and that many of his digressions are...free-associative riffs adding up to nothing but hot air....All of [this] suggests....that, halfway through, Mr. Moody abandoned the effort to transform self-indulgent fragments into something that might properly be called a book."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 05/13/2002

Review:

"Rich Moody is a gifted writer whose dense prose can be extremely evocative. When he's actually telling a story, he keeps you right in the palm of his hand, and THE BLACK VEIL has some really magnificent passages....It's a shame that, despite all these virtues, THE BLACK VEIL is an unsuccessful book. Personal history can be self-revelatory, but Moody's is too self-obsessed. He recounts every rambling thought that eve entered his head, so that reading this book [is] often excruciatingly dull and unmitigatedly narcissistic."

Andrew Solomon, Bookforum, Summer 2002
