      I was very glad to have read a couple of the essays but, as with any anthology, many I did not appreciate or did not really understand. But the collection has led me to some other worthwhile reading.

      Most important for the Brazilian texts; read them if nothing else. Deft genealogy scramble by Meyer Schapiro; Blinky Palermo gets his due - a generous overview of his short, zig-zagging career & his criics' deficits; a magic show by Fredric Jameson smack in the middle. Also glad to have Irit Rogoff's essay "Smuggling" in hard copy somewhere I can find it.
