About the Author

Barbara Foley is a Distinguished Professor of English and American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark. She is the author of Radical Representations: Politics and Form in U.S. Proletarian Fiction, 1929-1941, Spectres of 1919: Class and Nation in the Making of the New Negro, Wrestling with the Left: the Making of Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, and Jean Toomer: Race, Repression, and Revolution.


"This ambitious book's great merit is its stubborn insistence that literary criticism must be explicit in both its theoretical and political assumptions, a belief that makes Telling the Truth stimulating reading for anyone willing to grant Foley's tightly argued response to contemporary theories of genre, mimesis, and ideology the close attention it deserves. Telling the Truth is a challenging, thought-provoking book, one that should be read by specialists in the novel and by anyone interested in how contemporary critical and social theory can help us recognize literature and literary criticism as the political practices they have always been."

-- Craig Howes * NOVEL: A Forum on Fiction *
