Clayton Childress on the Life of Books

This week, The Annex sits down with Clayton Childress from the University of Toronto.  Clayton wrote Under the Cover: The Creation, Production, and Reception of a Novel  with Princeton University Press.  We discuss the process of a fiction book’s conception, development, distribution, and reception, and the degree to which the fiction publishing industry resembles our own publishing industry. We also discuss Washington University in St Louis’ plan to charge for IRB review, and what to make of the spread of junk science news items on social media.
