'Filled with brilliant analyses of many classic films and novels, Kroeber's fascinating and witty study argues in persuasive detail for the special charms of the visual and, even better, for the extraordinary imaginative power of the verbal. This generous and accessible book should be read by everyone interested in the workings of narrative, both visual and verbal.' - Susan Morgan, Distinguished Professor of English, Miami University of Ohio
"Kroeber takes on the vexed comparison between verbal and visual storytelling and produces the best account we have - a revelation." Tobin Siebers, University of Michigan
'Kroeber's Make Believe in Film and Fiction wears its considerable erudition lightly and will probably reinvigorate interest in some of the first principles of film and literary aesthetics. Kroeber writes pleasurably and convincingly about the fundamental differences between seeing and reading, as well as about the different forms of imagination that good movies and good books elicit. His analysis of classic films and books is consistently intelligent, producing a seamless blend of criticism and theory. - James Naremore, Indiana University
