Leslie Elizabeth Eckel is Assistant Professor of English at Suffolk University in Boston.
This book represent a fine contribution to transatlantic scholarship...Eckel's
way of recontextualizing authors according to their vocational routes offers
illuminating new readings of canonical American writers.
Paul Giles, Journal of American Studies, 48/1
Each chapter of Atlantic Citizens is deeply grounded in criticism,
history, biography and close textual analysis. Leslie Eckel's prose is largely
jargon free and sparkles with shrewd insights and delightful wit. Her book is a
bold declaration that transatlantic literary study is as vital as ever.
