Academic novels

I think I saw some fairly unimpressed reviews of Elaine Showalter’s new book about ‘the academic novel’. Now she has a piece in the Guardian. OK, she likes Gaudy Night. But not one mention of Alison Lurie? (My personal favourites, I think, are The nowhere city and Foreign affairs.) Harrumph.

Not that I would be so shallow as to judge a writer by how much her taste in books coincides with mine, of course…
