"Suitable for all libraries." -- Library Journal
"Any way you look at it, the Encyclopedia of the Novel is impressive. It is a much needed treatment of a major literary art form that will be of use to scholars and general readers alike." -- Against the Grain
"Encyclopedia of the Novel will help students, professors, and the avid reader to identify, evaluate, appraise, and perhaps enjoy the defining writers, novels, and themes. This work is a felicitous melding of the interests of the novel-reading multitudes and the critics who analyze the genre. Its acquisition should be a high priority for academic and large public libraries." -- Booklist/RBB
"Will enrich the reading experience of serious students with thought provoking observation, commentary, and judgement. If only students would find such material before wallowing in the Web! Highly recommended." -- Choice
"This must surely be the most comprehensive and cosmopolitan publication about the novel ever attempted… It is difficult to praise sufficiently this splendid encyclopedia, except to say that it will not be superseded for many years to come, and that it should be given pride of place in all the best reference libraries." -- Reference Reviews
