Reviews

"The Nature of the Page offers an innovative and refreshing approach to the study of books and reading by focusing on paper as a ubiquitous yet underappreciated material--revealing it to be a rich source of evidence for cultural history and literary interpretation. Readers will never look at paper quite the same way again."--Alan Galey, University of Toronto


"Clever and truly interesting, The Nature of the Page admirably draws our attention down to earth and to the plants and animals that live there. It will be welcomed by scholars in both ecocriticism and the material history of the book."--Ken Hiltner, University of California, Santa Barbara
