Re-covering Modernism: Pulps, Paperbacks, and the Prejudice of Form
That modernist literature was not the exclusive purview of a cultural elite but was available to a mass public via popular magazines and pulp paperbacks, is the subject of David M. Earle's nuanced exploration of the publishing and marketing of modernism. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, Earle's study shows that modernism emerged in a publishing ecosystem that was richer and more complex than has been previously documented.
