A review by cleverbaggins
On Rereading, by Patricia Meyer Spacks


This is the last of the literary theory type books I'm trying for now and its just as disappointing ( but at least not as insulting) as the last few. The writing is dry and boring and honestly it seems like she doesn't have anything new to say at all. She's somewhat dismissive of younger readers (like her students) and had no clue about some major titles.

Now, I don't believe that everyone has to have read or heard of anything but if you love books and want to write about books (and god forbid are teaching books) I expect you to be at least a little up to date on books.

So no, this book wasn't for me at all.
