Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is written in a remarkably clear and accessible style that conveys complex material without dumbing it down or feeling academic."
Jefferey Drouin, James Joyce Quarterly

"… describes an emergent preoccupation with the fact of death and its most salient aspect, the silence of one’s ancestors; he sees the modern novel as self-consciously exploring an ultimately Pyrrhic yet essential and authentic need to connect with the dead … Lewis’s readings are usually good and occasionally extraordinary: there are throughout exceptional moments of textual engagement."
Modern Philology
