MEDIA REVIEWS

'[A] lively and accessible study [...] [This book] will be of use to both researchers and students, thanks to the deft way [Murphy] handles the interaction betweeen intellectual history, suburban studies and popular culture. [...] Murphy's most pertinent insights come from her discussion of the economic and racial dimensions of suburban gothic texts [...] these issues only manifest in genre texts occasionally and Murphy's alertness to them is one of the study's major strengths.' - Cara Rodway, The Journal of American Studies
