Surviving a Generous Review


More generally . . .


William Eaton has been accused of trying to revive old forms: the intellectual essay and philosophical dialogue. Praised as a "joyful skeptic" (UTNE Reader) and for combining “the compelling truth of documentary with the grace of romantic fiction” (Manuel Puig). And from readers: “Beautiful writing . . . there is an electricity.” “Rewarding!" "Quite amazing.” “Very smart, very articulate, very warm.”

Eaton has been an award-winning journalist, novelist, writer of erotic fiction, intellectual essays and dialogues. The Professor of Ignorance Condemns the Airplane, a dialogue, was staged at Dixon Place in New York in 2014.

Editor of the Zeteo journal. Holds graduate degrees from Columbia and the City University of New York, and a B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley.
