5 Star Amazon Review
"Well-written, extremely well-researched, scholarly collection of essays on what the author calls 'the greatest American novel ever written'. I tend to agree. This book is thoughtful, searching, and a pleasure to read. And it enhances one's enjoyment of the classic 1943 novel itself."
