Praise

“With intellectual elegance, Moretti invites us to use maps, not as all-encompassing solutions, but as generators of ideas.”—Umberto Eco

“Moretti … is a seductive, stylish guide. One has the powerful sense of reading the results of concentrated thought: every page contains an aphoristic insight … The reader is smuggled across borders that flash by in the dark … The Atlas of the European Novel is a wonderful achievement: a visual pleasure as much as a textual one; a work in the vanguard of a new critical school that marries grand theory with a punctuating wit.”—Steven Poole, The Guardian

“A genuine and useful and inspired work of aesthetic investigation … it will have a massive importance, not only to critics, but more importantly, to writers.”—New York Press

“. . . a frequently brilliant and almost always eye-opening book.”—Washington City Paper
