Product description

Review

[Eagleton is] clearly a writer who enjoys being a provocateur: there s something to argue with on pretty much every page of Across the Pond, and usually something downright hilarious, too. Great stuff Terry Eagleton is a funny man. --Geoff Nicholson"

Incisive and honest Eagleton s contribution to the persistent subgenre of Toquevillian analysis: the European curmudgeon s critical, ultimately appreciative and, in Eagleton s case, loving guide to the wacky Yanks and their nation.--Michael Washburn"

His mode is that of a jocular anthropologist, pint in hand, chattily offering up his opinions.--David Wolf

Incisive and honest... Eagleton's contribution to the persistent subgenre of Toquevillian analysis: the European curmudgeon's critical, ultimately appreciative and, in Eagleton's case, loving guide to the wacky Yanks and their nation.--Michael Washburn

Terry Eagleton has a gift for the kind of generalizations that at first appear outrageous but seem, on reflection, annoyingly perceptive. Were I one of the expressive Americans he describes, I'd call this book awesome; as a constipated Brit, I'm inclined to say that it is not at all bad.--Henry Hitchings, author, The Secret Life of Words

About the Author
