The publication is a fraction, a collection of intensive notes; what survives—more than 2 hundred print pages—is still very huge. Adorno’s reviews and commentaries, continually aphoristic, are jam-packed with perception and, into the discount, are richly provocative and in most cases provoking.” —Richard Leppert, collage of Minnesota
