Modernist Fiction and News characterizes modernist fiction in terms of its intimate, creative, and experimental relationship with the newly reorganized and rapidly expanding news industry of the early twentieth century. This original study reveals the ways in which writers such as Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, John Dos Passos, and Virginia Woolf engaged with the discourse and narratives of the news to establish an experimental space for representing experience with the hope of greater immediacy and faithfulness to reality. David Rando explores how the contested category of experience motivated these key writers to sustain defining engagements with the revolutionized news discourse that claimed so much narrative space and power in their culture.

About the Author:

David Rando is an Assistant Professor of English at Trinity University. He has published articles on topics such as James Joyce, Thomas Pynchon, animals, and indie rock.

Review:

“This timely and beautifully written book shows that the sinuous difficulties of Joyce, Stein, Woolf, and Dos Passos first emerged as responses to the technological possibility of total information storage and thus continue to offer powerful critiques of our own media-saturated culture.  Dexterously moving between richly articulated close readings and often striking theoretical claims, Modernist Fiction and News is a provocative study of how modernism seeks to carve out a unique immediacy of experience from the mere happenings of a news-driven modernity.”—Sean Latham, Walter Professor of English at the University of Tulsa, Editor of the James Joyce Quarterly, and former President of the Modernist Studies Association 

Modernist Fiction and News: the very title, with its accommodating and complicit ‘and,’ is asking for a fight. For a generation of critics trained to see fiction and journalism as (high and low) brawlers, Rando unfolds a very different story of the complicit, even ‘co-dependent,’ relationship between the fourth estate and the Republic of Letters. It makes for a fascinating, compelling study.”—Kevin J. H. Dettmar, W. M. Keck Professor and Chair of English, Pomona College

"Ultimately, this book provides a small Benjaminian shock of warning:it does not do to be glib about the shortcomings of hard-nosed commercial news media. Its strength, however, is when it ignores this larger context and concentrates on the playful, erudite reworkings of ordinary life that make up so much of modernist literature." - Journal of Modern Periodical Studies
