Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A collection of engaging essays on writing and material culture that addresses our ability to know or understand ‘things'. In A Peepshow with Views of the Interior, acclaimed fiction writer and poet Aislinn Hunter writes lyrical paratexts on topics ranging from Charlotte Brontë's dogs, bird displays in museums, peep shows, and clocks and convalescence.
Review Quote*"If there is one book I would recommend as a working and accessible example of the ‘postmodern' in literature, it would be Aislinn Hunter's A Peepshow with Views of the Interior: Paratexts... It is a book where content and form come together, where the separations between ‘highbrow' and ‘lowbrow' are erased... At times, the book is dense and intense, at others, clever and filled with indulgent puns. It provides insights that many of us would do well to examine again... Just about every page of this book provides a new insight into the world of language, imagination, the I and the other." - Event
