"The subject of Spanish autobiography is still in need of extensive research. Fernández contributes significantly to this enterprise with his intelligent, well-informed, and insightful study of the genre in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. There is no other book that covers this important material and, given the difficulty and the vastness of the topic, there probably will not be another similar book in the future. It will be immensely useful to anyone interested in autobiography. . . . Apology to Apostrophe is a text that will keep underliners busy."—Randolph D. Pope, Washington University in St. Louis — N/A
"This book analyzes autobiographical texts, several of them little studied, and does so in an original, thought-provoking way. Autobiography in Spanish letters has, with very few exceptions, been all but ignored. The author takes a significant subject and studies it in a theoretically informed manner. The scholarship is superior."—Noël Valis, The Johns Hopkins University — N/A
