"Improper Modernism, especially in its close examination of the intertextuality of Barnes's corpus, its serious archival research, and its close attention to previously under-examined texts, is a groundbreaking contribution to Barnes scholarship." --The European Legacy
"... a book of meticulous research and argument that draws deeply on archival sources, other Barnes and modernist scholarship, and feminist, queer, and psychoanalytic theory to make its case." --Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature
"Caselli's reading of the first encounter with Robin Vote in Nightwood [...] is the most thorough, sophisticated, insightful, and ultimately convincing in all Barnes scholarship to date...Caselli's volume makes a crucial contribution to current scholarship, challenging the way marginal or anomalous writers are normalised in critical practice." --Modernism/Modernity
"Of the three [recent studies of Barnes and modernism reviewed here] Caselli's is by far the most ambitious and thorough in its treatment of Barnes. [...] An exciting resource that will have a lasting and propulsive influence on Barnes scholarship.' The Space Between: Literature and Culture, 1914-1945
