Reviews the book, Discourse and identity by Anna De Fina, Deborah Schiffrin, and Michael Bamberg (see record 2006-10893-000). The reviewed book brings together 15 chapters, which aim to offer analyses and reflections that can be seen as essential for discussions on the discourse/identity interface. The chapters are written by scholars who endorse various (inter)disciplinary perspectives. By employing a variety of specific theoretical and methodological approaches, such as narrative analysis, conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, and critical discourse analysis, the editors draw together the two themes: discourse and identity. All in all, this collection demonstrates the significance of the study of narrative and its role in creating and negotiating identity in a number of communicative contexts, which should make it interesting to a wide range of disciplines. As a whole, it is an accessible, comprehensive, solid, coherent, wide-ranging volume and the readers will find extremely valuable introductions to a number of interdisciplinary possibilities.
