It’s here! It’s real!

Look, it’s a real book!

Behold! Book

Also, here is the blurb on the back, which I must have written but I have no memory of. I think it does quite a good job of describing the book, given what I’ve already said about how hard I find it to talk about:

Now and Rome is about the relationship between political order and terrestrial space. Reading the post-civil-war works of two key Latin poets alongside five major contemporary cultural theorists, Ika Willis argues for an understanding of politics as the transformation of material space into historical archive, and of sovereignty as the impossible attempt to control both the here of political territory and the now of historical archive. In doing so, Willis redefines the relationship between the ‘virtual’ and the ‘material’, showing that there is no material space without technologies of the virtual; no politics without deconstruction; and no now without Rome.

Huzzah! Go buy it! (Or, you know. Request that your university library order it with its last remaining pennies.)
