Critic of the Month

When did you first write for ABR?

June 2013.

Which critics most impress you?

Peter Brown on the ancient world, Terry Eagleton and Jim Holt on philosophy, Robert Evans and Ian Buruma on international relations, Joan Acocella and Janet Malcolm on anything. I don’t always agree with them, but they are knowledgeable, witty, revelatory writers. In Australia, Delia Falconer and James Bradley on fiction, Richard King on non-fiction, Geoff Page on poetry. I’ve had the privilege of editing them and always admired their clarity of thought and easy writing styles.
