Printer s Devil

Printer s Devil

"In this fascinating study, we see a great 19th-century writer grappling with such 21st-century concerns as the challenge of authenticity in a world of ubiquitous duplication, the meaning authorship in an age of celebrity, the role of words and texts in a world ceaselessly bombarded by visual images, and the struggle to simultaneously exploit and contain the power of new technologies. Michelson sets Twain's often playful interrogation in fiction of new cultural forms such as the interview or the "chromo" against the backdrop of changes in publishing and print media that brought these forms into existence. Printer's Devil will interest anyone who cares about Mark Twain or the history of print culture in America."—Shelley Fisher Fishkin, author of Lighting Out for the Territory: Reflections on Mark Twain and American Culture " A major contribution to Mark Twain studies and, more broadly, to an understanding of American culture."—Gregg Camfield, author of The Oxford Companion to Mark Twain
