The employment of employment
I learned today that Vivian Wagner has published a most generous review of my 1998 book, The Employment of English: Theory, Jobs, and the Future of Literary Studies in Workplace, the internet’s premier journal of academic labor. Thanks, Vivian!
I’m reminded of the first internet review the book received-- from James Diedrick at the Authors Review of Books almost six years ago. And then later in 1998 there was Janet McNew’s somewhat more critical (but still quite nice) review over at the American Book Review. I should have acknowledged these things long ago, I guess, but I didn’t have a blog then, now, did I.
