Editorial Reviews

Dvora Yanow
Rosen's writing style anticipated and illustrates recent attention to writing practices, including narrative as method....his writing challenges the boundary between social science and fiction".
Gideon Kunda
It is a collection in which both text and subtext speak to the possibilities and difficulties of ethnographic practice and its inextricably tied promise and pitfalls. And together, in the light they cast upon each other, they produce what should be the ultimate goal of good ethnography: multilayered, evocative stories that ring of truth".
