Pressestimmen 'The tale of Cervantes himself is told with impressive acuity thoroughness and exactitude by Egginton in his uncommonly full and readable book about genius.' - Buffalo News Editor's Choice'Egginton shines in his literary analysis teasing out Cervantes's genius in accessible prose and showing how Don Quixote paved the way for modern fiction by exploring its characters' inner lives . . . An entertaining and thought-provoking reading of Cervantes's masterpiece.' - Publishers Weekly'A celebration of a beloved novel and its innovative author . . . Egginton's well-informed history of 16th-century Spanish life politics and culture makes for an engrossing read.' - Kirkus Reviews'We need books like this: not-purely-academic studies that could reinvigorate contemporary fiction--the idea of what contemporary fiction is or could be--by intervening in the past.' - Flavorwire'An engaging and enlightening book on the pivotal role of Cervantes in the development of western literature. He provides a literary biographical and historical overview of Cervantes's life and work in well-written prose mercifully free of jargon and amply justifies the truth of his wonderfully provocative title.' - Edith Grossman renowned translator of DON QUIXOTE'Egginton's study of Cervantes is a poignant account of Don Quixote which with Montaigne's Essays is the only work contemporary with Shakespeare able to compete with his transcendent power. We know nothing that truly matters about Shakespeare whose inwardness is concealed in the cosmos of his dramas. But with Cervantes and Montaigne we know nearly everything since each became his own subject. Four centuries after Cervantes and Shakespeare died The Man Who Invented Fiction is a worthy memorial to the eternal achievement that Cervantes wrought out of his own suffering and hard-won wisdom.' - Harold Bloom Sterling Professor of Humanities Yale University and author of THE WESTERN CANON'As this book shows us Cervantes doesn't simply predate our idea of fiction; he conditions it gives it form makes it possible. In this sense the present book can be understood as a genealogy of the literary imagination and its suffering father . . . . [The Man Who Invented Fiction] invites us on a journey through the misfortune-packed life of the author showing how his difficulties failures and disappointments ended up crystallizing in the miracle of a book that recapitulates and redeems them at the same time . . . Egginton's entertaining intelligent solidly documented study . . . invites us to rediscover this summit of literature preparing us to enjoy it between the lines and reminding us how the old man Cervantes continues to await us an ironic smile on his lips in that strange place called the future.' - Andrés Neuman novelist author of TRAVELLER OF THE CENTURY winner of the Alfaguara Prize'An exceptionally readable account of Cervantes's literary career . . . Those reading William Egginton's study with fresh eyes will find much to whet the appetite.' - Times Literary Supplement Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende William Egginton is the Andrew W.
