"The French Surrealist movement drew inspiration not only from its well-known literary and artistic origins but also from currents of psychological anxiety and rebellion running through a shadowy side of mass culture, specifically in fantastic popular fiction and sensationalistic journalism. The provocative nature of this insolent mass culture resonated with the intellectual and political preoccupations of the surrealists, as Robin Walz demonstrates in this fascinating study. Pulp Surrealism weaves an interpretative history of the intersection between mass print culture and surrealism, reevaluating both our understanding of mass culture in early twentieth-century Paris and the revolutionary aims of the surrealist movement." - from dustjacket.
