An important contribution to the scholarship linking literature and technology, Reading Matters offers a sweeping overview of the myriad ways machinery has affected the creation and interpretation of narrative. With topics ranging from how the advent of typewriting divorced the hand from the pen (and so the body from the text) to the appropriation of the conventions of high modernism in the bestselling techno-thriller, this compilation of twelve original essays and a newly translated one examines the authors and the theoretical concerns that have both helped to make prose fiction a marginalized genre and guaranteed its indispensability in our arguably post-chironic cyber age.
