Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"A skillfully and humorously written academic novel, narrating a longish episode in the life of a successful American specialist in 18th-century French literary and intellectual history, whose relationship to her husband is nearly derailed by her encounter with a strange manuscript by an unidentified author from 'her' period, entitled Rameau's Niece. The protagonist's confrontation with this text, and her dealings with a number of interestingly drawn male and female characters in a variety of contexts, are vividly described." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
