Review:

"Finally, a literary theory primer with a mind of its own, a language that's accessible, and a voice that's engaging! -- Fred Gardaphe, Columbia College, Chicago

"The appeal of the book, and its distinctiveness, lie in the genuinely reader-friendly nature of the author's arguments and style." -- TLS
