Since this is a new novel, there isn't much written on it yet. Often for literary criticism, you will have better luck with older novels or those written by more established authors.

To find criticism articles, go to our A-Z Databases libguide, linked below. Select the Literature tab. You will see links to databases that are good for research on this topic.

I tried a few, and only found articles in ProQuest and the link All EBSCO Literature Databases. To access these databases, click on the links in the Literature tab. If you are off campus, you will have to log in with your last name and 7-digit COM ID. If you are not a College of the Mainland student, you won't be able to use the databases. Only students of a particular school are allowed to use them. You would need to find the library link for your own school and access the databases there. You will also find contact information for your librarians so you can ask for help if you need it.

I used the search phrase: "shock of the fall" .  Include the quotation marks. This tells the database to find articles on that exact title. In ProQuest, enter the phrase into the search bar and check the Full Text box under the bar. Run your search. For the All EBSCO link, enter the search phrase, run the search, and then click the Full Text box to the left of the result list.

Both databases have limiters on the left for publication date, subject, etc., if you need to narrow the results. There weren't that many, so you can probably just scan the result list.

I'm also including links to libguides on using these databases. They have search tips, instructions on using article tools such as citation, saving, printing and more.
