About The Book

Interspatiality is a book about the language, theory and practice of a literary geography that takes as its subject matter the inseparability of writing, reading and living. It explores ways of engaging with interrelated textual-social-spatial processes, working with the problem of how to appreciate these processes as inseparable, how to articulate the complex spatialities they generate, and how to convey their presence, power and significance in literary texts. With a focus on literary geography as something inhabited as well as studied, the book draws attention to the interspatiality of routine daily life – a mundane literary geography – in surroundings that are made up of the real and imagined, of stories as well as locations, storied locations and located stories.
