"Nobody's Perfect", the much anticipated collection from "The New Yorker" critic, brings together a generous selection of Lane's film criticisms, profiles, book reviews, and essays on art and culture. In the manner of Edmund Wilson and Kenneth Tynan, Lane embraces high and low with equal gusto, clearly having a marvelous time. Whether he's writing about T. S. Eliot or Judith Krantz, Alfred Hitchcock or Andre Gide, to read him-or better yet, to reread him - is to be carried along on a current of passionate declamation and urgent inquiry, wry reflection and penetrating wit. Taken together, these pieces reflect some of the most brilliant writing and thinking to have graced the pages of "The New Yorker", and they impart a cultural and artistic literacy of the highest order. This, Lane's first book, is an exhilarating volume for fans old and new.

Review:

"Lane writes the way Fred Astaire danced; his sentences and paragraphs are a sublime, rhythmic concoction of glide and snap, lightness and sting." -"The New York Times Book" "Review ""Anthony Lane has energy, wit, taste, learning, and (most signally) elegance of mind." --Martin Amis "A pure pleasure to read." -"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
