[Sommer's] brilliant tour of the intersections of literature, theory, and rhetoric focuses on such topics as discontinuity, deferral, over- and underdetermination, and textual rhythms...The associations are extraordinary and effective, this is, convincingly idiosyncratic. The examples work beautifully because they suggest, but do not push, the big picture. Sommer contributes to the project of mainstreaming 'minority writing' and of breaking boundaries in general. Proceed with Caution is a major study of writing strategies, of reader response, and of the politics and distribution of authority. Highly recommended.
