"I found Eck’s detective work intriguing, Edmondson’s metaphors convincing, and Wilson’s potted history of the monogram delightful. Nevertheless, it is the more personal sections of this volume that are the most successful, both artistically and intellectually. The memories shared by Fagan’s friends and colleagues, and his own contribution, are full of affection and humour. Meanwhile, in the three reflective chapters, Gatzke, Lendon, and Rogers make strong cases for the importance of a number of themes arising from Fagan’s work that glint through in the other contributions."
