Reviews of Evelyn Barish's The Double Life of Paul de Man have appeared in most major newspapers and magazines. David Lehman's review ran in the Wall Street Journal on March 14, 2014 and his letter to the editor of The New York Review of Books in response to Peter Brooks' apologia appeared on May 8, 2014.
This is a good time to remind readers that David Lehman's Signs of the Times: Deconstruction and the Fall of Paul de Man is now available at Amazon as a Chu Hartley Publishers e-book. Writing in the New York Times, Michiko Kakutani calls the book, "superb" and "fascinating": "It stands as a lucid and fiercely intelligent study of the disturbing implications of deconstruction, and at the same time, as an impassioned argument for a more humane study of literature." More recently, Raymond Sokolov writes that this book, "Exposes a vicious con man and his moronic followers, with thorough research, intelligence and an admirable commitment to literature. Bravo."
