MEDIA REVIEWS
In addition to the various groups of essays, the book features a substantial chronology of American novels (from 1752 to 2000) and a series of lists of representative works in some of the most important traditions and genres discussed. (Poetics Today, 1 May 2014) As a consolidation of prior scholarship and a spur to further investigation, it makes a meaningful and substantial contribution to the ongoing scholarly conversation about the American novel.
