Editorial Reviews

Janell Watson
Any scholar of the nineteenth-century French novel should read Vallury's exemplary critical study... an impeccable bibliography of both literary studies and theoretical works... Vallury is to be applauded for her ambitious attempt at the impossible task of locating twentieth century self-deconstructing gender-bending in canonical nineteenth century male authored narratives.
