Praise for Missing Time

“In these wry, funny, and incisive essays on topics ranging from growing up with The X-Files, to feeling disappointed in Philip Roth, to what we might learn from second-generation US communists, Ari M. Brostoff helps us diagnose and historicize our present in a way beautifully true to the legacy of ’70s feminist writing and also to the ‘political life of diaspora Jewry and all it [stands] for: ambivalence, absurdism, emasculation.’” —Sianne Ngai

Praise for Mercury Retrograde

“Emily Segal is almost mystically attuned to the cultural logic of our era. She lives its pangs and contradictions intellectually, emotionally and somatically—late capitalism’s Simone Weil.” —Tom McCarthy
