“This [volume] fills a useful niche. . . .  Definitely a good purchase for any library serving students of literature.”


“All libraries collecting in English literature and women’s studies should find this special bibliography useful. These materials are often difficult to find in one source.”

Fuderer’s introductory essay traces the academic discussion of the topic from the early 1970s to the present; the bibliography lists 133 books, articles, and dissertations that deal either with the genre of the female bildungsroman or with novels described as such and written by women.
