about Glass ...
"[Garrison's] small but deeply satisfying book [...] shuttles us back and forth between the way glass marked the imaginative world of Renaissance plays and poems to the imagined worlds of today's interactive glass surfaces in the guise of iPhones, smart appliances, and smart rooms." -- Los Angeles Review of Books
"These are not so much lessons about the objects themselves, but opportunities for self-reflection and storytelling. They remind us that we are surrounded by a wondrous world, as long as we care to look." -- Chicago Tribune
"[A] book that can be read in a fascinated hour, but will influence your reading and your looking for the next month." -- Times Literary Supplement
about Shakespeare and the Afterlife ...
"Considering the divergent strands of belief that the plays offer and multiple opportunities that death provides for the interrogation of life, the book provides a very compelling, erudite, thoughtful and nuanced exploration of individual and social meaning, and the 'powerful hold that loss and reunion have on our private emotions and collective consciousness'." -- Shakespeare Survey
"Ultimately, the book as a whole lives up to the promise printed on its back cover to 'encourage us to engage with the author's work with new insight and new curiosity,' and I came away with a new appreciation of how Shakespeare navigated the troubled waters of religious doctrine and cultural ideology in the early modern period regarding death and the afterlife." -- Renaissance Quarterly
about Sexuality and Memory in Early Modern England ...
"Any book that begins with a recollection of Roland Barthes's chiaroscuro montage of memory and desire in A Lover's Discourse would have my immediate attention, and I was dazzled by the imaginative reach of Sexuality and Memory in Early Modern England: Literature and the Erotics of Recollection." -- Studies in English Literature
