"A Familiar Strangeness" is original, well written, and well documented and will add to and revise our understanding of the American novel and its tradition.--Edgar A. Dryden "author of "Monumental Melville: The Formation of a Literary Career" "
Burrows's "A Familiar Strangeness" makes visible and intelligible how the photographic image and the image of photography work and work together in later nineteenth- and earlier twentieth-century American fiction. The matters of likeness and reference in the still image--an image bordered on the one side by painting and on the other by the cinema--are mapped with precision and a compelling range of historical and literary implication.--Mark Seltzer "Evan Frankel Professor of Literature at UCLA "
