Pressestimmen

"Along the way Soloman recuperates the reputation of an important writer (Dahlberg), offers an illuminating reading of Nelson Algren's novel Somebody in Boots, and meditates on the language of James Agee's Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. Supplemented with extensive notes, this is a theoretically sophisticated and engagingly written analysis. Highly recommended." Choice
