"How does a novel accrue value? How do certain new and unknown authors and their works make their way from obscurity into the pantheon of the greats, or--at least--the firmament of the stars?" Minuit examines the role played by French publishing house Editions de Minuit in altering the conception of literary France, not once but twice. The history of Editions de Minuit is an integral part of the history of the literary field; in Minuit, Spalding's work captures many of the cultural dimensions of literary production and dissemination at the height of France's post-war intellectual and literary effervescence, and again, in the more recent period, when Minuit became the vehicle for French literature's 'postmodern' turn.
