Pressestimmen"...Ronen's book is a most valuable and exciting contribution of great interest to two communities of specialized readers: those interested in the general dynamics of theory formation in cultural studies and those whose interests focus on one central issue in this sphere, fictional worlds and their constitutive domains." Uri Margolin, Style "...illuminates the logic underlying an important interdisciplinary borrowing and constitutes a powerful reassessment of fictional narrativity. It is a splendid performance." Gerald Prince, Language of Design
