How do fiction and research intersect? In The Frankfurt Kabuff Critical Edition (Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2023), Beth Driscoll, an Associate Professor in Publishing, Communications and Arts Management at the University of Melbourne and Claire Squires a Professor in Publishing Studies at the University of Stirling, reflect on Blaire Squiscoll’s The Frankfurt Kabuff, by bringing together a collection of scholarly and creative responses to the original novella. Playfully critiquing the idea of a critical edition, from its form and content through to the book’s footnotes and index, the book offers a huge range of insights on the publishing industry. Showing how fiction can be research, art, satire, and a political project, the collection of essays and appendices are essential readings across the arts and humanities, as well as for anyone interested in publishing, fiction, and wanting to read a good erotic thriller!
