A literary scholar who is an adult adoptee delves into one of the enduring themes of literature - the child raised by other parents. ""Reading Adoption"" artfully combines memoir with literary and feminist scholarship, shedding new light on familiar texts. Engagingly written from Marianne Novy's dual perspectives as critic and adult adoptee, the book explores the ways in which novels and plays portray adoption through careful readings of works by authors from Sophocles to Barbara Kingsolver.
