Subject to Criticism
Through a variety of critical approaches,
Subject to Criticism juxtaposes the literary with the personal, the
theoretical with the biographical. Within the context of essays, reviews.
letters and interviews, Tostevin examines the writing of other writers
and identifies recurring themes that stimulate her own writing process.
Her views are often provocative, sometimes ambivalent, even rebellious,
as she expands the usually objective stance of literary criticism with
intimate and subjective experience.
