barking on a project that is both productively reparative and excitingly innovative: on the one hand, the collection makes it impossible to view Wharton as a figure for whom questions of race and embodied otherness do not apply and, on the other, it provides a foundational contribution to future conversations about race and otherness in early twentieth-century American fiction. Sheila Liming is Assistant Professor of English at the University of North Dakota, where she teaches classes on modern American literature and media history. Her first book, about Edith Wharton and bibliomania, is forthcoming from the University of Iowa Press. Literature and Photography in Transition, 1850–1915, by Owen Clayton. New York: Palgrave, Macmillan, 2015. ix + 233 pp. Cloth, $95.00; Paper, $90.00; Ebook, $74.99. paul baggett Readers of Studies in American Naturalism will find Owen Clayton’s Literature and Photography in Transition, 1850–1915 appealing not only for those chapters devoted to William Dean Howells’s and Jack London’s relationship to photography, and in London’s case, to early cinema, but more broadly, for the remarkable sensitivity Clayton brings to the development of visual culture over the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
