Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

Combining literary analysis with a practical introduction to interdisciplinary literary geography, Literary Geographies examines key elements of Colum McCann's 2009 novel, Let the Great World Spin. Looking at the novel as socio-spatial and intertextual interactions involving author, editor, publisher, and reader, the book offers a new way to look at narrative settings, literary space, and the geographies of creation, production, and reception. Here, Sheila Hones combines literary analysis with a practical introduction to interdisciplinary literary geography.

Sheila Hones is a Professor in the Department of Area Studies at the University of Tokyo, Japan. She co-manages the online bibliography Literary Geographies and is an editor for the journal Literary Geographies.
