“An engaging and ambitious work of great importance. Howard’s discussion may radically reconfigure the terms of discussion for nineteenth-century conceptions of gender roles. Valuable not only for its impressive scholarship but also for its originality and insight, Publishing the Family is sure to occupy a prominent place in American literary and cultural studies.”—Emory Elliott, author of Aesthetics in a Multicultural Age — N/A
“Howard tells an original and carefully reasoned story about the nature of American literary sentimentalism and realism and connects both to changing expectations about gendered identity and experience. In the process, she uses the phenomenon of this collaboratively authored novel to subject our commonsense assumptions about literary creativity to searching scrutiny.”—Janice Radway, author of A Feeling for Books: The Book-of-the-Month Club, Literary Taste, and Middle-Class Desire — N/A
