Reviews

'The openness is generous, and reveals how research ought to be: curious, unafraid to get jammed, thinking its way around obstacles, serendipitous.  This is criticism as exploration, undaunted and exhilarating." - Jim Stewart, TLS
 
'...a lively and entertaining collection of essays, that both refreshes common ground and...is unafraid to extend its reach.' - Virginia Woolf Bulletin
