Review:

"Diana Fuss gives us in "The Sense of an Interior a whole range of new ideas about interiority and the senses, subjects, and objects. Her lovely prose brilliantly captures the affective qualities of architectural spaces. In the process, it de-hierarchizes the senses--primarily of course by deconstructing vision's primacy--but also by helping us pay attention to the neglected senses to complicate, enrich, and reorient our experience. Fuss's book constitutes as strong an argument as can be made for the benefits of an interdisciplinary approach to scholarship and writing."
-Douglas Crimp, Fanny Knapp Allen Professor of Art History, University of Rochester, and author of "Melancholia and Moralism

Synopsis:

The Sense of an Interior is a fascinating exploration of domestic space and of the ways it determines how writers work. The book looks at four famous figures - Emily Dickinson, Sigmund Freud, Helen Keller, and Marcel Proust, and examines the relationship between their work and the spaces where they wrote. Diana Fuss examines how each writer ordered their room in response to disabilities of varying seriousness; as well as Helen Keller, Emily Dickinson was house bound as a result of periodic bouts of blindness, Freud was partially deaf, and Proust, obsessed by smell, couldn't bear to work near the odour of cooking. Illustrated with almost sixty images, many rare, and some never before published, this richly observed book weaves together new understandings of domestic space, creativity, and disability.
