Our readers might be interested in this review of the Cambridge Companion by William Sharpe, who teaches up the street at Barnard College. Sharpe is the author of a book that Bryan and I were pleased to read last spring: New York Nocturne: The City After Dark in Literature, Painting, and Photography, 1850-1950 (Princeton UP, 2008), which offers a cultural history of the city after dark — or, rather, a history of the ways in which life after dark helped to create the culture of the city. Sharpe’s review appears in NBOL-19, an online review of books on nineteenth-century British and American literature.
