interviews JEffrEy J. wiLLiAms Gordon Hutner has worked to build a new literary history of the U.S. In 1989, he founded the journal American Literary History (ALH), and he has edited it since, turning it into a central forum in the field. In his own writing, he has called attention to the overriding majority of serious fiction that literary histories typically ignore, notably in his book What America Read: Taste, Class, and the Novel, 1920-1960 (2009). Hutner's first book, Secrets and Sympathy: Forms of Discourse in Hawthorne's Novels (1988), surveys the novels of that canonical American author. Through the next decade, Hutner published several edited collections, including The American Literary History Reader (1995), drawn from the journal; American Literature, American Culture (1999), an anthology of two hundred years of American literary criticism; and National Imaginaries, American Identities: The Cultural Work of American Iconography (co-edited; 2000), also drawn from ALH. Alongside these, he has edited and introduced a number of works of American literature, including The Imported Bridegroom and Other Stories by Abraham Cahan (1996); Immigrant Voices: Twenty-Four Narratives on Becoming American (1999); The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie and The Gospel of Wealth (2006); and Babbitt, by Sinclair Lewis
