“Ebury’s book is a rich archive of sources, suggestive connections, and strong readings of interest to scholars of modern literature. … Ebury’s book will be of interest to scholars of modern literature, psychoanalysis, and law, for it effectively makes the case that reading the ways these discourses are braided together in the history of capital punishment is not just generative but necessary.” (Ariela Freedman, James Joyce Quarterly, Vol. 59 (3), 2022)
