The George Eliot Review 39 (2008) Published by The George Eliot Fellowship, http://georgeeliot.org/
Middlemarch has been in the public eye since our last issue: Erica Wagner's column in the Times for Saturday 13 October 2007 bore the heading 'How good is Middlemarch if you reread it? Better'; and on 24 May 2008 the Review section of the Saturday Guardian devoted two and- a half broadsheet pages to Zadie Smith's tribute to George Eliot, 'On Middlemarch'. We have recently received Josie Billington's new Reader's Guide to the novel, Eliot's 'Middlemarch' (Continuum, 2008). This will be reviewed in our next issue.
Another work just received - Elizabeth Sabiston's Private Sphere to World Stage from Austen to Eliot (Ashgate, 2008) - will also be reviewed in our next issue.
