'Beckman draws from a stunning array of primary and secondary texts, interviews, and letters to offer a skillful and faithful study.' - Charles W. Stivale, Distinguished Professor of French at Wayne State University 'Beckman skillfully weaves together a narrative that moves between Deleuze's life and what he called "a life". Along the way, many of Deleuze's most important concepts are clarified and critically analyzed in a way that will make this Critical Life both a valuable resource for scholars and an excellent introduction to his life and work.' - Alan D. Schrift, F. Wendell Miller Professor of Philosophy, Grinnell College
