Abstract:"Selling Out: The American Literary Marketplace and the Modernist Novel" re­examines the "modernist author" we think we know by rereading how four American authors, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Kay Boyle, and William Faulkner deliberately tried to create a literary reputation through both their success in commercial publishing and their resistance to it. I do not so much refute the difference between elite and mass culture, but instead show how even in their fictionality, those very categories inform the very structure of how we understand the categories of the author, the book, and of modernism itself.
