The Best of Roger Ebert

"No critic alive has reviewed more movies than Roger Ebert, and yet his essential writings have never been collected in a single volume—until now."

The University of Chicago Press is publishing Awake in the Dark: The Best of Roger Ebert this fall. The anthology promises to collect some of the best of Ebert's writing over the past forty years, including interviews, reviews and essays. Visit the publisher's information page to view the full table of contents. The Chicago Blog also has an excerpt from an advance review of the book.
