Abstract

present; Red White and Blue (1987) is a political parody; Valley of Ros (200 es 3) is a fictional memoir of a young boy who, like his author, grew up in Bulgaria during the Second World War. Both scholar and fiction writer, Stoltzfus also shares the New Novelists’ ten- dency to theorize and explain their novels in a proliferation of epigraphs and pref- aces, self- r eviews, and other critical apparatus both within and separate from the novels. In addition to conversations between Romola fic nd tio ’s nal characters, then, one can thus also enjoy the dialogue between the professor and the novelist. - Romo land will appeal to scholars and fans of experimental fiction and to those interested in the relations between images and texts and between fiction and critical reflec- tion on the nature and purposes of the arts. Lynn a. higgins  Dartmouth College Laura Chiesa, Space as Storyteller: Spatial Jumps in Architecture, Critical Theory, and Literature Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 2016, xii, 250 pp. Much traditional architecture aspires to a unitary narrative of power, what histo- rian Spiro Kostof terms “the Grand Manner”: There the city is conceived as a work of art,
