Experimental fiction is emerging from the thickets of post modernism. ISU English Professor Chris Breu has a new book out addressing this shift, Insistence of the Material. In this conversation with GLT's Charlie Schlenker, Breu argues for the value of attending to the material world and how that physical world sets limits on social and individual life.

English Professor Chris Breu's book, Insistence of the Material: Literature in the Age of Biopolitics is published by the University of Minnesota Press.
