Computers have replaced bank tellers and office workers. Will they replace writers? For many years now John Tranter has experimented with a computer program that can analyse the styles of various pieces of writing and then create a new text with a style that blends the originals. The seven prose stories and meditations that make up Different Hands are highly polished versions of the fragmentary rough drafts that came out of that project.
So does this point to the Death of the Author in the cybernetic future?
Not in John Tranter’s hands. He turns these bizarre literary juxtapositions into curious fables that sparkle with irony, outrageous humour and narrative verve.
