From Library Journal:

In this selection of his critical essays from 1957 to 1990, Garrett's engagement with literature seems effortless. His style easily encompasses texts as different as the poetry of Joyce Cary and the novels of James Gould Cozzens. Writing from the Southern tradition, Garrett is always aware of literary fashions and politics and is strongly committed to the relationship between literature and life. Among the various authors discussed, the reviews of John Ciardi and Wright Morris are especially interesting. The articles on the historical novel and a major section on William Faulkner contain important ideas. Recommended for large literature collections.
