About This Item

Normal, Illinois: Dalkey Archive Press. Trade Paperback. November 2003. Trade Paperback. First English Edition (stated). As New. Not a remainder. Not damaged. 221 pages.

A biting critique of book publishing: agents, subagents, and scouts, supermarket-like bookstores, Joan Collins, book fairs that have little to do with books, authors promoted because of sex appeal instead of merit, and editors trying to look like writers by having their photograph taken against a background of bookshelves. One of the most interesting and paradoxical comparisons coming out of Ugresic's dissection of book culture is the similarity between the art of socialist realism (as prescribed by the Soviets) and the nature of contemporary marketplace to produce and promote art that appeals to everyone.
