"Kostelanetz excels, for instance, at astutely cynical debunkings of many of the 'radical chic' culture heroes of the 60s. . . . He can be scathingly funny as well deflating both the over-rated trendy avant-gardists and the 'New York Intellectual' elders who tyrannized the time. . . . As a meticulously reconstructed record of literary coming of age in a particularly propitious cultural moment, 'One Million Words' has carved out a unique place in the annals of literary autobiography."Library

"Having already published collections of critical essays on fiction, poetry, performance, politics and visual art, Richard Kostelanetz for the first time selects here from his writings on film and video. As in earlier volumes, these essays emphasize the primacy of possibilities intrinsic in each medium. Always representing radical alternatives, he writes with uncommon perception not only about familiar issues but about films customarily forgotten, and always with his customary clarity. Also included are prefaces and transcripts from his own films and videos. He writes: "Another implicit assumption behind my activity is acknowledging the importance of books in collecting together initially scattered opinions, for I have long contended that the critic who fails to risk publishing books is just a reviewing journalist, or, worse, an opportunist." Celebrating four decades of book-publishing, he remains a prolific force and a unique independent voice. Individual entries on Richard Kostelanetz appear in Contemporary Poets, Contemporary Novelists, Postmodern Fiction, Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians, A Reader's Digest to Twentieth-Century Writers, The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature, Webster's Dictionary of American Authors, The HarperCollins Reader's Encyclopedia of American Literature, and the Encyclopedia Britannica, among other distinguished directories. Living in New York City, where he was born, he still needs two bucks to take a subway."--Publisher's website.

Politics.Cultural Writing. Both anarchist and libertarian, Kostelanetz combines the creed the best things in life are free characteristic of the former with the approval of enterprise (enterprise, not capitalism) and competitive markets associated with the latter. Displaying less interest in adhering to a political ideology, this Rashkolnik desires more to explode blockage and explore the mechanisms of change, identify the areas most in need of change, and propose future possibilities. POLITICAL ESSAYS shows Kostelanetz possessing Lenin's strength, but with a different, more contemporary outlook. Anyone familiar with his many writings on arts and literature should find these essays both informative and provocative.
