Praise

“Few critics could match the subtlety of Mulhern’s interpretations or the eloquent precision of his prose.  Perhaps the best thing about this book is that it sends the reader back to the novels to test out its hypotheses, thus providing an education in the condition of culture novel and its polymorphic figures of catastrophe.”
—Maud Ellman, Critical Inquiry

“An extraordinary, thoughtful and thought-provoking study, Figures of Catastrophe is very highly recommended for community and academic library Literary Studies reference collections and supplemental curriculums.”
Midwest Book Review

Praise for The Moment of Scrutiny:

“Very welcome and important … the book is at once indispensable.”
Guardian

“Extraordinarily thorough and responsive … austerely elegant … in praise of a distinguished essay in cultural history and critical theory.”
Times Literary Supplement

“This is a book to be grateful for.”
Criticism

“A richly informing and provocative work of intellectual history … Mulhern marshals his evidence stwith a rare power of argument and a scrupulous fairness of coverage.”
British Book News

“An important and valuable book … written with intensity and intelligence.”
Nation
