About the Author

Seth Lerer was born in Brooklyn, New York, and educated at Wesleyan, Oxford, and the University of Chicago. He has taught at Princeton, Stanford, and the University of California at San Diego, and is the author or editor of twelve previous books. His work has been awarded the Harry Levin Prize of the American Comparative Literature Association, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and many other recognitions.

Reviews will be hard pressed to find a better model of attentiveness to the matter at hand, of wide-ranging, meticulously observed appreciation, of unpedantic collegial dialogue, of lucid address. * Marshall Brown, Modern Philology *
The real pleasure of Lerers essay lies in his elegant close readings and his fluid mapping of intertextual pathways. Tradition is a quietly affecting book, not least in the way that it encourages readers to reflect on their own archives of the self, and the particular stories that have shaped us along the way. * Keith Hopper, Times Literary Supplement *
