MEDIA REVIEWS

Maggie O’Farrell’s Hamnet brought her the critical acclaim she has long deserved, and now this excellent collection of essays brings her the scholarly attention she merits. These essays are theoretically savvy and offer smart but accessible readings that will return readers and scholars to the delights of O’Farrell’s work. - Jo Eldridge Carney, Professor of English, The College of New Jersey, USA
