Analysing Patricia Grace – a warning

May 8, 2012

Patricia Grace’s “apparently straightforward plots, clear diction, and nearly transparent prose make her fiction seem relatively uncomplicated,” warns Mariam Fuchs (quoted p14 Pistacchi) “Because nothing blatant provokes the smooth surface of Grace’s plots, critics do not feel compelled to marshal theoretical apparatus but rather assume that attention to the storyline is an adequate approach.”
