Scott Timberg wrote on music and culture. He was a contributor to Salon and the New York Times, and ran ArtsJournal’s Culture Crash blog.
“Timberg—himself a culture journalist who was a victim of one of
the Los Angeles Times’s seemingly endless series of layoffs—makes a
good case that, as Bob Dylan once put it, ‘something there’s been
lost.’”—Ben Yagoda, New York Times Book Review

"A quietly radical rethinking of the very nature of art in modern life."—Richard Brody, NewYorker.com
"If you believe that the life of your mind is inseparable from the health of your life, that serious art and artists are an essential component to human nourishment, then you have an obligation, to yourself and your children and us all, to read Timberg's book."—William Giraldi, The New Republic
