One of the reliable delights of reading The New Criterion is the music criticism of Jay Nordlinger. But music is only one arrow in Jay’s capacious quiver. His new book Here, There & Everywhere demonstrates beyond cavil that Jay is one of our most engaging critics and social observers. This wide-ranging collection of personal essays and critical asides takes the reader on a grand tour of now: whether the subject is geopolitics, the latest cultural outrage (or triumph), or sports, Jay is on the spot with intelligent and engaging commentary. Here, There & Everywhere will not be in bookstores until the new year, but advance copies--signed and, if you wish, personally inscribed by the author--are available now at a special discount through National Review here. Want a sample of what you have in store? Check out the lively conversation between Jay and John J. Miller about the book.
