Some brief overview of book

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice. A 2019 NPR Staff Pick. "Malcolm is always worth reading; it can be instructive to see how much satisfying craft she brings to even the most trivial article." -Phillip Lopate, TLS Janet Malcolms previous collection, Forty-One False Starts Essays on Artists and Writers, was "unmistakably the work of a master" (The New York Times Book Review).

Like Forty-One False Starts, Nobodys Looking at You brings together previously uncompiled pieces, mainly from The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books. The title piece of this wonderfully eclectic collection is a profile of the fashion designer Eileen Fisher, whose mother often said to her, "Nobodys looking at you." But in every piece in this volume, Malcolm looks closely and with impunity at a broad range of subjects, from Donald Trumps TV nemesis Rachel Maddow, to the stiletto-heel-wearing pianist Yuju Wang, to "the big-league game" of Supreme Court confirmation hearings. In an essay called "Socks," the Pevears are seen as the "sort of asteroid that has hit the safe world of Russian Literature in English translation," and in "Dreams and Anna Karenina," the focus is Tolstoy, "one of literatures greatest masters of manipulative techniques." Nobodys Looking at You concludes with "Pandoras Click," a brief, cautionary piece about e-mail etiquette that was written in the early two thousands, and that reverberatesalbeit painfullyto this day.
