Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Richard Robinson's study of shifting European borders in twentieth-century literature offers a refreshingly new take on how fictional texts negotiate and transmute imaginatively a sense of locality - of geographical and temporal emplacement...This study is important for all those who read books not merely to confirm their theoretical models of preference, but also to delve into fiction's own signifying borderzones.' - Cristina Sandru, English
