What the critics are saying…

Quote from Warren Motte’s H-France review: “…the vast majority of the claims that Berkman stakes in this volume involve considerations that are well founded. This is true even when she is working in long focus, encouraging us to think about the very idea of shape, for instance, or about the behavior involved in the act of counting.” (2)

Quote from Dennis Duncan’s French Studies review: “Thankfully, Natalie Berkman has recently taken it on herself to do the maths, elucidating in (relatively) plain language some of the complex structures at the core of the Oulipian project…Berkman’s book is an excellent crib for the less mathematically literate among us, and a useful addition to the literature on this enduring and enduringly curious group.”
