Cambria Press author Lillian Craton’s Book Praised by Victorian Studies for being “useful and compelling”
Cambria Press congratulates Lillian Craton on the outstanding review of her book The Victorian Freak Show: The Significance of Disability and Physical Differences in 19th-Century Fiction by renowned scholar Marlene Tromp in Victorian Studies, which states that Professor Craton’s book is “an important contribution” and that “the most significant innovation of the project is the way in which Craton uncovers the often positively valence of such differences as they are depicted in literary texts.”
It praises the book (published by Cambria Press in December 2009) because “scholars in disability studies and Victorian studies will find this book useful and compelling, particularly in its discussions of fat and body size, yet it is readable for undergraduates as well.”
