Scandals and Abstraction

Financial Fiction of the Long 1980s

Leigh Claire La Berge

  • Focuses on a diverse and interrelated range of cultural products from the 80s (novels, films, economic journals, financier autobiography)
  • Argues that literature's relation to finance in the 80's takes shape as a new aesthetic-economic form: "financial form"
  • Tracks the emergnece and changing representational forms of print culture and capitalism
