Coming Soon...


Looks nice, doesn't it? I'm reading through the page proofs this week and they look nice too--though it's hard not to be anxious about whatever stupidities of mine will be revealed when the whole thing finally goes public.

Now that's an eye-catching cover! Congrats.

You will have at least one non-academic reader.

The cover looks great.

Yes, it does look nice. I think you've said it's Broadview? I was wondering how they'd interpret the cover. My students got very cross with the cover of Broadview's Mansfield Park last year!

Great cover! When will it be published?

Thank you all--though of course the credit does go to the smart designers at Broadview. I'm not sure the exact date that there will be hard copies to be fondled, but they want the proofs back by March 16. I was going to say there's not much of me in it (my introduction is just a few pages), but on the other hand, even the choices I made for what to include and what to leave out say something implicit about what I find interesting. I also worked very hard on the annotations (pitch them to an average second-year student, they said, as if that was helpful advice...). Of course, if there are stupid gaffes, that's where they'll be, since the notes range wildly outside my own usual fields of expertise!

Please do let your blog visitors know about the publication details when the book is ready for the market (and my reading list)!

Looking forward to getting my hands on this. Will it be priced at text book prices, or reading public prices? Hopefully the latter, or else I will have to twist the arm of my local librarian :)
