Description


This fascinating new book explores the figure of the writer as ghost in contemporary American fiction, focusing on the work of five authors (Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Toni Morrison, Marilynne Robinson and Philip Roth). Framed by the work of Jacques Derrida, Ghost Writing in Contemporary American Fiction demonstrates how the central theme of the ghost writer relates to an ethics of writing involving questions of personal and social responsibility, record and repetition, memory and forgetfulness, and faithfulness and betrayal.
