About the book:

A collection of essays addressing the role of high technology in the literary arts that attempts to expand upon the dialogue initiated in The Gutenberg Elegies, Birkert's book published at the dawn of Internet mania. Among the essays in Tolstoy's Dictaphone, "Only Connect" by Lynne Sharon Schwartz considers our relationship with telephones, Daniel Mark Epstein writes about the charmingly archaic atmosphere of Baltimore's Peabody Library and Mark Slouga speaks of "the culture of distraction," arguing that electronic media are contributing to the loss of "the daily grinding of differences so necessary not only to the democratic process, but to individual growth."
