Simon on Tootsie: "Tootsie is fun. There have been years, perhaps decades, in film history when that would have been modest praise, but these days, this year, a film that is more or less adult fun is worth, in E.M. Forster's phrase about democracy, two cheers, anyway." This unique collection displays the wit, humour, wide span of knowledge, and serious engagement with the arts that have made John Simon's work respected and recognised the world over.
John Simon (1925-) was born in Yugoslavia and awarded his PhD in comparative literature from Harvard University.
