ISBN: 9781604979534

"Hedda Friberg-Harnesk’s brilliant new study offers an original and intimate analysis of John Banville’s preoccupations with disguise, duplicity, and simulation.

Friberg-Harnesk shows us how to read Banville, and to read him well, as a writer not just troubled by modernist problems of existence and representation, but determined to explore the creative and restorative strategies necessary to cope with them." —Professor John Brannigan, University College Dublin Read More..

Imperfect Understanding:

Intimate Portraits of Modern Chinese Celebrities

Essays in Honor of the 75th Birthday of Victor H. Mair

Chinese Women Writers and Modern Print Culture

Megan M. Ferry
ISBN: 9781604979381

This detailed study of the textual and visual mechanisms that bring gender into being makes an important and original contribution to our understanding of print culture, both in China and beyond." —Michel Hockx, Professor of Chinese Literature and Director of the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, University of Notre Dame Read More..
