“Infrastructural Modernity” examines blocked infrastructure: the fetus-clogged sewers of Manhattan Transfer and the corpse-choked furnaces and airshafts of Native Son. In these and other instances in which working infrastructure becomes most visible in its breakdown, I argue, an array of novels resituates fraught social dynamics through the dual specter of noisy and always-on communication.
