My name is Vinny Haddad and I am currently earning my PhD in Literary and Cultural Studies at Wayne State University   I earned B.A. in Education at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. My research intersects book history and affect theory in studies of contemporary American authorship and readership.

This blog is not so much a summary of any of the books I discuss, but a process of working through them as I study for my Qualifying Exam. I offer these up as a reference for any others that are going through a similar process or are simply interested in books being discussed. I encourage any and all feedback.
