Modernist Literature: An Introduction

By Mary Ann Gillies; Aurelea Mahood | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

No book is ever written without support and encouragement. We would like to thank the following people for providing us with just that and so much more.

John Whatley, who suggested that we embark on this project in the first place.

Jackie Jones, our wonderful editor at Edinburgh University Press, whose belief in this book meant that it saw the light of day.

The many professionals at Edinburgh University Press who assisted in the transition of the manuscript to finished book, especially James Dale, Ian Davidson, Máiréad McElligott, Stuart Midgley, and Esmé Watson.

Dania Sheldon, who compiled the index.

Bev Neufeld, for assisting us with various formatting issues at a crucial moment.

Sheila Roberts, who graciously agreed to proofread a penultimate draft of the book at very short notice.

John Pierce, Diane Gibson, Peggy Lacasse, and Mary Ann’s other colleagues in the Dean of Arts and Social Sciences Office at Simon Fraser University whose ongoing support of her research, despite the fact that it takes time away from faculty business, is invaluable.

Andrew Klobucar and Rick Appel, for listening when Aurelea was working through the many stages of revision.

Denise and Brent Mahood and Anneliesa Bush, who reminded Aurelea to go outside during the rewrites.

Finally, we would like to thank our students, at Simon Fraser University and elsewhere, whose love of modernist literature continues to inspire us. We dedicate this book to them.
