"An excellent reference for students of autobiography, an essential text for students of American autobiography, and the central critical work for students of modern American autobiography."—James Olney

"Stone displays a breadth of scholarship that is impressive. There are scores of allusions to lives other than the ones under discussion, and there are frequent references . . . which make this a truly interdisciplinary study and for which Stone should be strongly commended."—Literature and History
