Rezensionen
"In these fine rhetorical readings of novels by Hurston, Faulkner, Nabokov, Morrison and others, James Phelan offers a capacious view of the development of the American novel from the twentieth century to the twenty-first. With characteristic clarity and precision, Phelan considers the many ways in which imaginative vision and acts of reading coalesce as they reflect the experience of living in the modern world. This is an essential contribution to the understanding of the American novel in our time."--Patrick O'Donnell, Michigan State University
