Reviews

Praise for Eminent Hipsters

"[An] excellent. . . and satisfying memoir. This is less about Fagen's career than about his tastes. . .He writes insightfully about music, films, and books. . .with this remorseless, hilarious book, Fagen reveals himself as a first-class grump. . . Eminent Hipsters is also a convincing testimonial to the honing effect of a lifelong devotion to the culture of misfits, weirdos and cranks."--Rolling Stone "Fagen is utterly charming when he describes other performers. . .he defends TV and film composer Henry Mancini from charges of fuddy-duddyness. . . his essay on Connie Boswell is the kind of top-notch, incisive cultural critique you ain't gonna get from the likes of Keith Richards. Just like the lyrics he penned for the Dan, Fagen's writing here is charged with a zingy, acerbic intelligence."--Slate.com "As you would expect from someone who has been one of the most consistently sardonic voices of rock, Fagen can write."--GQ.com
