MEDIA REVIEWS
Clueless about Emma? This new student guide could be your best friend while reading the novel.
Austenprose, January 4, 2009
"Hecimovich's text is solid and accessible enough that one could imagine a professor assigning it to students alongside the novel it comments upon.
JASNA Review
Hecimovich's guide is reader-friendly with clear prose and organization; it offers students insight into Emma in addition to way into the text if they are struggling with a research paper.
