"Advanced scholars will be most at home with the level of discussion, but the author clearly relates plentiful historical references to Twain’s texts and develops a convincing case for the prevalence of race-related issues in Twain’s consciousness.”
"A brilliant book that will add immeasurably to Mark Twain studies, American literary studies, and the field of comparative studies of race and ethnicity. Exciting, well-written, and filled with surprising, unexpected connections, Sitting in Darkness contributes to our understanding of the history of comparative racialization in America while deftly placing literature in legal and social contexts that are truly illuminating.”
—Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Professor of English and Director of American Studies, Stanford University
