good critics

Michael Miller:

Present: Terry Castle, Geoff Dyer, Gary Indiana, Janet Malcolm, Joshua Cohen, Zadie Smith, Ed Park, Luc Sante, Sam Anderson, Stephen Burt, Laura Miller, Alex Abramovich, Eric Banks, Joan Didion, John Ashbery, Joshua Clover. I like some people who write more about music than about books: Robert Christgau, Jon Dolan, and Rob Sheffield come to mind. Past: Mary McCarthy, John Leonard, Edmund Wilson, Virginia Woolf, and David Foster Wallace.
