Editorial Reviews

"Aware that many readers are likely to encounter several faces for the first time, Wallace adopts a style that remains conceptually dexterous yet approachable in its capacious exposition of material between periods an exposition in which countless women writers hitherto marginalized by neglect are retrieved as we shift nimbly between survey and textual analysis." David James, "Modernism/Modernity""" "Wallaces nearly encyclopedic study contribute[s] to important feminist revisions of literary history." Loretta Stec, "Clio""" "Diana Wallace's extremely useful and interesting new survey of twentieth-century historical fiction by women writers summarizes the relevant critical arguments and has broadened the picture considerably." Maroula Joannou, "Women: A Cultural Review"
