“[Nguyen] produces close readings of the novels, films,
monuments, and prisons that form ‘the identity of war’ in
Vietnam . . . Nguyen draws insights from Levinas, Ricoeur, and
other philosophers, and his approach has affinities with that of
hybridists such as W. G. Sebald and Maggie Nelson. The book is
also notable for its inclusivity, addressing Cambodian, Laotian,
Hmong, and Korean experiences and the competition for
narrative dominance in bookstores and box offices.”

Geopolitics in the Black Literary Imagination
Vaughn Rasberry

“A powerful meditation that reveals the complexity and nuance
of the African American diasporic literary imagination. This is no
ordinary re-reading of classics, nor is it a slight gesture toward
a transnational theory of race, writing, and politics. It is instead
a close reading that manifests itself in a theoretically sophisticated analysis of race literature’s relationships to Cold War totalitarianism. With this book, Rasberry introduces himself as part
of the new generation of critical theorists who are unapologetically broadening the scope, reach, and relevance of the African
American literary canon.”

Translation’s Forgotten History

Russian Literature, Japanese Mediation, and the
Formation of Modern Korean Literature
Heekyoung Cho

“Innovative and concise, Translation’s Forgotten History exemplifies the strengths of comparative literary studies since the
coming of postcolonial scholarship. How did Tolstoy, Chekhov,
and other Russian writers come to dominate the Korean literary
imagination through Japanese/English translations? The author
explores this fascinating history by examining multiple mediations of foreign texts in modern Korea and succeeds in altering
our conception of the foundations of a national literature.”

undertaking like the Murty

Struggling Upward

Worldly Success and the Japanese Novel
Timothy J. Van Compernolle

It illuminates lost things,
brings back to recognition
texts that were once crucial.”

Struggling Upward reconsiders the rise and maturation of
the modern novel in Japan by connecting the genre to new
discourses on ambition and social mobility. Collectively called
risshin shusse, these discourses accompanied the spread of
industrial capitalism and the emergence of a new nation-state
in the archipelago. Drawing primarily on historicist strategies of
literary criticism, the book situates the Meiji novel in relation to
a range of texts from different culturally demarcated zones.

intellectual life . . . Roudinesco recounts Freud’s life and the development of his thought with great flair.”
—Samuel Moyn, The Nation
“Through seamlessly and eloquently weaving together details from
Freud’s time and our own, [Roudinesco] provides a refreshingly new
and welcome account—warts and all.”
