MEDIA REVIEWS

'Digressions is a collection that works on two levels. As a collection of individual essays it provides much that will interest, while as an extended meditation on digression it offers a collection of material that is hugely suggestive, if not conclusive, and which invites the reader into a pleasantly open-ended and wilfully wayward discussion.' Modern Literary Review

'...the volume contains some fascinating new perspectives on the function of digressivity in literature. It is certainly a welcome resource for scholars working in the field of narratology, and should open the way for further academic exploration of the topic.' - French Studies
