Editorial Reviews


"Paper Empire" fills the gap in the scholarly literature on Gaddis. I know of no other monograph or collection of essays that addresses in such a focused way the contexts, especially the systematic contexts, of Gaddis's writing--Brian McHale, author of "The Obligation Toward the Difficult Whole: Postmodernist Long Poems"

"Paper Empire" gathers a fine set of essays on a multi-award winning yet still under-appreciated novelist. . . . Tabbi and Shavers have given us a broad range of essays by American and European scholars, some of them fresh, compelling voices among critics of contemporary fiction and Gaddis's work—Steven Weisenburger, author of "Modern Medea: A Family Story of Slavery and Child-Murder from the Old South"
