Summary
"The Space of the Screen in Contemporary French and Francophone Fiction appeals widely to readers interested in the transformations literature has undergone in visual culture. Advancing the compelling argument that literary space functions as a space of critical reflection on and within image culture, Donna Wilkerson-Barker explores the centrality of media spectatorship in the novels of Genet, Guibert, and Bouraoui. The result is a new understanding of the dynamic intersections between bookspace and cyberspace within the developing landscape of postmodern literacy."--BOOK JACKET
