Pressestimmen

"As a modern mythmaker and one of the bestselling and most reproduced writers in English, Edgar Rice Burroughs deserves richer treatment than he has received, and several tendencies in the study of American culture--particularly the emphases on empire, masculinity, and popular culture--suggest that he will be more and more prominent in scholarly discourse. This book makes Burroughs accessible to a very broad range of scholars."-- Carlo Rotella, author of Cut Time: An Education at the Fights "As a modern mythmaker and one of the bestselling and most reproduced writers in English, Edgar Rice Burroughs deserves richer treatment than he has received, and several tendencies in the study of American culture--particularly the emphases on empire, masculinity, and popular culture--suggest that he will be more and more prominent in scholarly discourse. This book makes Burroughs accessible to a very broad range of scholars."--Carlo Rotella, author of Cut Time: An Education at the Fights "Cohen provides an informative historical context for Burroughs and Weston's lives."--John F. Kasson, Duke Magazine "Cohen's perception of the interconnections between personal and public identities makes this volume particularly insightful... Highly recommended."--J. J. Marchesani, Choice "I knew there was some reason other than Tarzan I loved this guy... I would recommend the correspondence for at least one read but a second or third might provide a much deeper insight into ERB's character. Altogether both men came off very well. Mr. Cohen is to be commended also for his minimal editing of the letters." --R. E. Prindle, ERBZine
