James Gunn, Recipient of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award for Lifetime Achievement in Science Fiction and Fantasy
From Huckleberry Finn to such modern classics as Catch-22, Portnoy's Complaint, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and A Confederacy of Dunces, the comic novel has long been one of the chief glories of American literature. Barr's novels, and not least her most recent one,
constitute a hilarious--and unswervingly feminist--contribution to this great tradition.
Carl FreedmanRussell B. Long Professor of English, Louisiana State University
Barr plunges readers into her very own academic specialty, feminist science fiction. And with it hilarious jokes, academic twists, and sex--lots of sex. Barr is an effervescent humorous writer who travels the world aboard a flamboyant imagination. Join her. You'll love the ride!
Norman N. Holland, Marston-Milbauer, Eminent Scholar Emeritus, University of Florida
Marleen S. Barr mentions Twain but I read her equally in the long tradition of Swift and George Eliot. She produces both criticism and fiction with a "savage indignation."
