Becca Rothfeld has received the National Book Critics Circle Nona Balakian Prize for Criticism as well as the Robert B. Silvers Prize for Literary Criticism. She is the non-fiction book critic for the Washington Post, and editor at The Point, as well as a PhD candidate (on long hiatus) in philosophy at Harvard, an essayist, critic, editor, and philosopher.

In her debut essay collection, All Things Are Too Small, Becca Rothfeld takes on one of the most sacred cows of our time: the demand that we apply the virtues of equality and democracy to culture and aesthetics. The result is a culture that is flattened and sanitized, purged of ugliness, excess, and provocation. Lush, provocative, and bitingly funny, All Things Are Too Small is a subversive soul cry to restore imbalance, obsession, gluttony, and ravishment to all domains of our lives.
