Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Steven Millhauser's fiction dazzles in its precise attention to the power of imagination and to the structures of stories. Earl G. Ingersoll's assiduous, detailed survey of Millhauser's oeuvre reveals the key patterns of plot, perspective, and motif that emerge from the work of this American master."--Josh Lambert, author of Unclean Lips: Obscenity, Jews, and American Culture

"Much like the characters in his uncannily-crafted stories, Steven Millhauser has remained an elusive and enigmatic figure, always just outside the margins of our admiration. Earl G. Ingersoll's thorough and incisive study enables us to grasp his evolution as a writer, his themes, and his craft, bringing us as close as we are ever likely to be to understanding his significance in American letters."-- Russell A. Potter, professor of English, Rhode Island College
