Writing Celebrity traces the rise of a national celebrity culture in the United States and examines the impact that this culture had on “literary” writing in the decades before World War II.  Galow demonstrate the relevance of celebrity for literary scholarship by re-evaluating the careers of two major American authors, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein.

Editorial Reviews

“Galow has written a shrewd, often surprising, and always entertaining study of literary celebrity in the modernist era.  His pairing of Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerald as mirror opposites transforms our understanding of both writers even as it radically revises the notion of 'the author' as produced in various American media between the two World Wars."--John McGowan, Ruel W. Tyson Jr. Distinguished Professor of Humanities, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill“In this well-researched and consistently interesting book, Galow complicates our understanding of literary modernism by exploring the rise of the culture of celebrity and its not always predictable impact on the profession of authorship in the United States.   His account of how F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein struggled to position themselves within a literary field that was often too simply divided between the high and the low is surprising and deftly presented.  Galow does a wonderful job of explaining how the history of their efforts at authorial self-presentation ought to affect our reading of their work.”—Jan Radway, Walter Dill Scott Professor of Communication Studies, Northwestern University
