Product Details

Praise

A first-class book, a landmark of sorts. . . . Cather emerges as what she really is, a person of great literary accomplishment, a true cultural
beacon. –RWB Lewis


“She is…a marvelous, canny writer.”–Terry Castle, London Review of Books

"Acocella’s book shines with exemplary good sense. . . . She is a sure witted judge of books." A.S. Byatt, The New York
Review of Books

“As a study of the politics of literary reputation [this book] is exceptional; as a serene appreciation of a great writer’s life and work, it is poetic; as a reminder to critics of a the function of criticism, it is harrowing. This book needs to be read."
–Robert Thacker, American Literature

“This devastatingly concise book isn’t going to win its fearless author any prizes — she marches through the ranks of Cather scholars the way Sherman marched through Georgia — but anyone who has had it up to here with political correctness should buy a copy . . . and get ready to cheer” — Terry Teachout, National Review
