In The Press

'In Modernist Literature: A Guide for the Perplexed, Peter Childs has performed the laudable feat of combining a comprehensive contextual account of the first three decades of the twentieth century with precise and clear readings of a refreshingly broad range of modernist works. This book is to be recommended for its boldness in bringing together writers and texts both familiar and less often read and taught. Throughout, Childs' signature qualities of lucidity, assurance and an eye for the telling detail shine through. This is a book that will enlighten students, have tutors sighing with relief, and offer an engaging introduction for the general reader too.'
