Product description

Review

The Novel: An Alternative History  is a breathtaking achievement. Steve Moore isn't just incredibly well  read, he's also funny, irreverent, argumentative and sometimes even  downright mean. There's nothing dryly academic about his magnificent  book--it's as personal as a love affair and just as thrilling. Like  Edmund Wilson, Hugh Kenner or Randall Jarrell, Moore writes with real  stylish dash, yet backs up what he says with the authority that only  comes from vast knowledge. Ancient Greek novels, classics of Asian  fiction, medieval romances, Renaissance allegories, Victorian  triple-deckers, postmodern experiments--Moore knows them all. For  readers, the result isn't just a history of the novel, it's also one of  the all-time great literary carnival rides. --Michael Dirda, author of Classics for Pleasure and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for criticism
