Reviews

“‘Each chapter offers a combination of practice and theory in that it joins the actual rewriting of the history of the novel to reflections on that rewriting’ … . The book as a whole deserves the attention of anyone interested in the history of the novel and the future of its study.” (Jason H. Pearl, Sharp News, Vol. 24 (4), 2015)
