Abstract

present; Red White and Blue (1987) is a political parody; Valley of Roses (2003) 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’ tendency to theorize and explain their novels in a proliferation of epigraphs and prefr aces, self-­ eviews, and other critical apparatus both within and separate from the novels. In addition to conversations between Romoland’s fictional characters, then, one can thus also enjoy the dialogue between the professor and the novelist. Romoland 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 reflection on the nature and purposes of the arts.
