"A marvelous and essential tool for McCarthy scholarship. It is remarkable for the completeness of its sources, its meticulous scholarly research, and its accessibility...Books Are Made Out of Books will facilitate exciting future scholarship on McCarthy's work." * Western American Literature *

"Michael Crews has performed a great service in writing his thoughtful and carefully researched Books Are Made Out of Books...McCarthy scholars will certainly admire Crews's intrepidness and thoroughness and will be delighted to have found a book we have really needed." * The Cormac McCarthy Journal *
"When invited over to a friend's place for the first time, I love to browse my host's bookshelves, mainly in the hope of discovering some new or obscure author to read myself. This is a bit what reading Books Are Made Out of Books is like, and why I found it such a pleasure to read...This book was as engaging as it was informative, and I recommend Books Are Made Out of Books to anyone interested in the 'strange tomes' of such a fascinating writer." * Publishing Research Quarterly *
"Crews's highly readable and meticulously compiled reference book will prove a useful tool for McCarthy scholars-not merely in terms of mapping the sources of McCarthy's intellectual content and rhetorical procedures, but also in fostering a more nuanced view of his postmodern techniques of pastiche, pasting and appropriation." * Forum for Modern Language Studies *
