Pressestimmen

'Phantom Communities develops its arguments with a razor's edge, and it has the gift of embracing ambivalence, contradiction, undecidability, and other forces with an uncommon sense of affirmation. This book will mark an enduring contribution to French studies in America.' Tom Conley, Harvard University
