Editorial Reviews

"This original and timely study adds a new dimension to our understanding of Holocaust writing. In her focus on magical realism, Adams offers fresh insights into a genre that has developed into one of the most important forms of literary response to the Nazi period." -- Dr. Matthew Boswell, Lecturer in English, University of Salford, UK
