Adding some other things to that list-

  • The idea of the nouveau roman from french post modernism
  • Memoir as fiction as memoir. The relationship between Kerouac’s memoirs as fiction versus Frey’s fiction as memoir
  • Also- does Frey’s latest venture demean novels? Does Patterson’s novel factories demean novels as literature? Are they different from Warhol’s art factories? How so?
  • Are books commodities, or are they art? Are bookstores galleries then? Can the two be both and the same, like Duschamp’s famous ready-mades?  Or are books experiences, packaged, sold, built up memories of other lives ready for us to consume and submerge into our own existence?
