About the Author
Enhanced with the inclusion of a list of abbreviations, an eight page bibliography, and a six page index, Claude Simon: Fashioning the Past by Writing the Present is an erudite and impressive work of explanatory scholarship. Of special note is Professor Cherry's epilogue: 'Writing (in) the Present, or the Art of Nonhierarchial Thinking'. While unreservedly recommended for college and university library Philosophy collections in general, and French Literature supplemental studies lists in particular, it should be noted for students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject.
