What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
In restoring to view the middle-class novels that chronicled Americans' multifaceted responses to modernity, Hutner is a master chronicler himself. His reclamation project—astutely directed at both criticism and fiction—enables us to recover a more accurate and a more democratic literary history than we have previously possessed.—Joan Shelley Rubin, University of Rochester, author of Songs of Ourselves: American Readers and the Uses of Verse
