Reference Reviews
"Writing for fans of Dylan, Eastwood, Eminem, and Lou Reed, no lessthan for readers of Freud, Heidegger, and Nietzsche, Lucycatalogues the ways Derrida has rocked words to their alphabeticcore. There is sharpness, wit, and high seriousness in everyentry." Peggy Kamuf, University of Southern California <!--end--> "Niall Lucy has written a witty, incisive, timely and highlytopical dictionary that deftly characterizes the most importantentries in Derrida's lexicon. The book is chock full of referencesto contemporary film, music and politics and spares us thetediousness of trying to formalize ideas whose very idea is thatthey cannot be formalized. In addition to making for an insightfulread and a pleasurable ride, Lucy does a good job of redefiningwhat a "dictionary" is supposed to mean. A saucy,sparkling success." John D. Caputo, VillanovaUniversity "Lucy brings and ironic, iconoclastic, and earthy approach tohis teask... Entries are cleverly focused so that major terms andconcepts get full attention ... Lucy is unpretentious and plainspeaking... This is a well worthwhile purchase for the librarywhere Derrida comes as new and rather threatening to students."
