Reviews

Edited and with an Introduction by Roger Whitehouse
“The book ranges widely and covers both some of the more expected topics and subjects (e.g. James Joyce and Michael Ondaatje) as well as some more unusual ones especially related to writers from the former Soviet bloc. . . . this variety will appeal to different types of reader and is a refreshing change from the relentlessly abstracted theorisation that often marks work on this kind of topic.” – Professor John Simons
