Review:

Normal0falsefalsefalseMicrosoftInternetExplorer4

“It may be that Sara Gleeson-White has rescued McCullers from the dogging image of a brilliant prodigy whose invalidism and self-absorption led to a fixation with the pain of human existence. Gleeson-White doesn't deny the pain, but she does reconfigure it by linking McCullers's texts not to the great Russians that she so loved—Tolstoy and Dostoevsky—but to the work of another Russian writer, Mikhail Bakhtin. . . . Gleeson-White's conclusion is a welcomed one. It is also about twenty-five years overdue.”—Modern Fiction Studies

“The sexually complicated characters who began appearing in Carson McCullers’ fiction in 1940 might have been made to order for gender critics, but Gleeson-White is the first to give them the full gender-studies treatment.”—CHOICE

“[Gleeson-White] has used the four core novels . . . for a stimulating interpretation of their restive anxiety at the formation of identity.”—ForeWord Magazine
