Johansen, Emily and Alissa G. Karl. Neoliberalism and the Novel. Routledge, 2015
The novel form has long been connected to modern capitalism and is, arguably, the literary genre most prominently enmeshed in contemporary global markets. Yet, as many critics have suggested about capital, something has changed in the last forty years. With the rise of neoliberalism as the dominant global economic rationality and mode of governance, the experience of capital has produced new ways of seeing and relating to the world, leading, as David Harvey observes, to “the financialization of everything”. The novel, indexed to capital in myriad ways, then, must similarly have been transformed.
