Pace, Space, and the Other in the Making of Fiction

Siri Hustvedt argues that human narrative ability is rooted in the prelinguistic, sensorimotor, emotionally charged dialogical experiences of timing in infancy and the learned patterns of those early exchanges. Prenatal life may be important to what will become narrative, but fetal experience must be understood in relation to the rhythmic motions and sounds of the maternal body.
