Authorship in an Economy of Promotion

  • Barbara Tomlinson

Abstract

Published interviews with authors circulate within an economy of promotion. Interviews advertise specific authors and texts, but they also help construct a more general sense of what writing is, who authors are, and how they do their work. An author’s interview never exists in isolation, but functions rather as a node in a complex network of conversation, communication, and commerce.
