?A subtle, funny and, in its way, profoundly serious study of the means by which art and artists are made.? John Banville, Irish Times
?The tragi-comedy of literary rivalry has never been expressed so nakedly, so well.? New Statesman
?A fine, funny book by a very clever writer?Baker is unprotected and thrillingly open, the bare forked writer: a touch ridiculous, therefore, but ridiculously talented.? Craig Raine, Independent on Sunday
?A handsome IOU from a rookie writer to a seasoned pro, but also a confessional, a book about the way one man?s shining words can march into your kitchen, and what happens when they do?Nicholson Baker is a canny, modern writer. He is building a sharp and singular library of the interior life, and U and I is a decisive and welcome addition.? Robert Winder, Independent
