Kevin Kelsey at Heradas

A concise yet comprehensive literary analysis on the works of the late Iain Banks. Kincaid’s writing functions primarily through illustrating and deconstructing the thematic lineage and interplay between Banks’ novels published with and without the M, but also delves into the deeper political and societal backdrop in which Banks’ wrote and lived.

 

Andreea at Infinite Text

This book has been written with so much passion. Kincaid writes an in-depth analysis as a product of very detailed close reading. 

 

Leticia Lara at Fantastica Ficcion

Kincaid's journey through all works is exhaustive, chronologically placing each publication and relating it to the moment of writing. In this respect the book is brilliant.
