Late Book Culture in Argentina

by craigepplin

Today is the US publication date of this book. It’s a study of experimental writing and small press publishing in contemporary Argentina, placed in the context of transformations in our media landscape. The first half of the book traces a genealogy of engagement with the medium of the book, with chapters on Osvaldo Lamborghini, César Aira, and Eloísa Cartonera. The second half focuses on morphological engagements with the book by Estación Pringles, Sergio Chejfec, and Pablo Katchadjian.

It’s an expanded rewrite of my dissertation, and as such it feels like it’s been a long time coming. I’m really happy to have it finally out in public.
