My book Mobility in the Victorian Novel: Placing the Nation is currently on sale – Palgrave Macmillan have 50% off their humanities series until 18th May 2016, which means my book is available for £29.
A generous first review of the book is now up at the FWSA blog, describing it as providing “consistently excellent readings of the works in question” – thanks to Lena Wånggren for her detailed and thorough review. I will be blogging a bit more about the chapter contents soon.
Also included in the Palgrave sale is Sea Narratives: Cultural Responses to the Sea, 1600-present which is now off to print and due out soon. Reviewed by Catherine Armstrong (Loughborough University, UK) who kindly writes:
“This is an ambitious volume which, throughout the nine essays, breaks new ground by undertaking exciting cross-disciplinary theorizing, summarising the state of the study of sea narratives thus far. A strong guiding editorial hand shapes and frames the chapters, which each offer the reader a glimpse of innovative original research.”
