Reviews

"Written in prose that is clear and free from the diktat of theory and criticism, A Little History of Literature is an enjoyable account of a lifelong involvement with literature."--John Vukmirovich, Times Literary Supplement
"For many, this book will be intellectual comfort food. For younger readers, it will, or should, function as a blueprint or study guide. Written in prose that is clear and free from the diktat of theory and criticism, A Little History of Literature is an enjoyable account of a lifelong involvement with literature."--John Vukmirovich, Times Literary Supplement
"This slim book makes for a necessarily cursory review of literature's greats - and the loving treatment by an expert . . . will please both novices and established readers looking to dip back into well-loved works."--Shelf Awareness
"A genial, enthusiastic guide leads a jaunt through literary history. . . . [Sutherland's] aim is not to draw a line between high art and low, but to share his prodigious joy of reading."--Kirkus Reviews
"John Sutherland is among the handful of critics whose every book I must have. He's sharp-eyed and sharp-tongued, with a generous heart and a wise head."--Jay Parini
