"Gwin offers exemplary readings of such works as Morrison's The Bluest Eye, Walker's The Color Purple, and Smiley's A Thousand Acres, developing the representation of such issues as father-daughter incest and gender formation while also noting differing personal and political readings of the texts." -- J.J. Benardete, CHOICE ADVANCE PRAISE
