From Library Journal:

To characterize Dubuffet's art and essays in one word is difficult, but "iconoclastic" probably comes closest. Dubuffet has little use for the influence of contemporary culture on art or thought in general (hence "asphyxiating" culture) and is blunt in his assessment of our slavish devotion to it. His Marxist-tinged polemics become excessive at times, but it is a pleasure to find an artist who can express himself in print as well as on canvas. The title piece occupies three-quarters of the book, with three short essays added. This is the first time that a book-length work of Dubuffet has been translated, and the result is smooth and happily free of grammatical trip-ups. Terry Skeats, Bishop's Univ. Lib., Lennoxville, Quebec
