"In a work that covers a remrkable range of major writers, and in which 'fiction and reality have not been able to keep their usual distances,' Professor Slatoff brings into a seies of illuminating conjunctions a variety of writers and literary forms (stories, novels, poems plays, essays, even songs) not usually brought together. He does so in an unconventionally personal voice and manner that he hopes will close to some extent what he regards as an uncomfortable gap between conventional modes of discourse about literature itself, a gap he finds 'not only uncomfortable but indecent' when the subject is suffering and sympathy."Hard Cover.
