Author Comment
Subject: thank you for your papers
I really enjoyed this session, but had to leave early to catch my flight. I wonder if the professor who gave a paper on Flaubert's short story might be kind enough to contact me, and if possible, send me her paper to read, as I enjoyed it very much. Also, Bettina, I was very impressed with your work, and would welcome the chance to read your book when it comes out. Could you please add my e mail to your list and send me a note when your book becomes available? My e mail is: Thanks to all the participants!

Best wishes,
Miranda Kershaw
