Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Lewis Hyde's ambitious and captivating book brings to life the playful and disruptive side of the human imagination as it is embodied in the trickster mythology.
"...Hyde seems not to have studied the scholarship of art as thoroughly as he has read his way through the trickster stories....Hyde never makes it clear how he has selected his culture heroes, and in any case, apart from the first two or three, his efforts to identify them as tricksters are unconvincing."
Paul Mattick, New York Times Book Review, 02/15/1998Review:
"[A] book that persuasively celebrates the need for the kind of paintings, music, books and ideas that society initially finds unpleasant, if not downright repulsive, subversive or immoral."
Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 02/08/1998
