Newspapers & Magazines
"A lucid, thoroughgoing analysis of the novelist's art, a study that not only reveals the grammatical and stylistic scaffolding on which character is built, but also imparts new insights into individual characters and the works in which they appear. A truly outstanding accomplishment."--William Riggan, "World Literature Today"
