MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mariadele Boccardi's study of the contemporary British historical novel is an absorbing, accomplished and well-researched piece of criticism that not only comments insightfully on a good range of writers but also represents a valuable contribution to ongoing debates about fiction, history, memory, nostalgia and postmodernism.' - Michael Greaney, Senior Lecturer in English, Lancaster University, UK

'... the study's overall achievement: to give an informative, well-researched and long awaited overview of questions of nation and empire in a genre that has to be counted among the most significant of contemporary fiction.' - Imke Neumann, ZAA - A Quarterly of Language, Literature and Culture
