Reviews

Authoritative voices speaking from various well-informed critical perspectives provide Leaving Springfield with rewards for scholars and Simpsons fans alike. Framed more coherently than most collections of television criticism, this volume makes a persuasive case for the series as an act of cultural resistance. Accessible language and detailed textual analysis lend the volume strong student appeal. Devotees will appreciate the close scrutiny of key episodes and intimate knowledge of the series that characterize these essays.--Caren Deming "University of Arizona "
The book takes a scholarly yet humorous look at how The Simpsons can remain so popular and yet be countercultural at the same time.--Chicago Tribune
