Reading the graphic surface

The presence of the book in prose fiction

Glyn White

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Now available in paperback for the first time, this book reappraises the range of effects it is possible to create through the use of graphic devices
  • Investigates features which literary criticism has generally dismissed as either unreadable experimental gimmicks or, more recently, as examples of the worst kind of postmodern decadence
  • Includes analysis of Samuel Beckett's Watt, B. S. Johnson's Albert Angelo, Christine Brooke-Rose's Thru and Alasdair Gray's Lanark
