"An original and valuable contribution to our thinking about history and narrative and the important current debate about the survival and continuing viability of a postmodern aesthetic. Truth is no longer, we feel, something for jesting Pilate to wash his hands of. Nor can it be allowed to disappear into the rarefied vacuum of poststructuralist ideas about language and referentiality. Gauthier's analyses repeatedly open the eyes of her readers to features not noticed before, to fresh interpretive angles, and to the cultural work of these contemporary historical novels - their truth telling, their revising nationalist histories and mythologies, their (re)making national mythic history, their speaking truth to power. " - David Cowart, Louise Fry Scudder Professor of Humanities, University of South Carolina
"At once erudite and passionate, Gauthier s book meticulously carves out a space for an emergent genre of historical fiction that, unlike historiographic metafiction, articulates a politics of truth telling. Mixing primary-source research with attentive close readings, she persuasively demonstrates how a wide range of contemporary authors aim to recover and redress forgetfulness about an array of historical traumas. In so doing, she offers a powerful new paradigm for transamerican studies." - Mark Osteen, professor of English,
