“The Silent History”— ostensibly an e-book, but unlike any you’ve seen before — is an exquisitely designed serialized work of literary fiction. The book’s central narrative, told in the form of an oral history, will be meted out by means of automatic downloads every weekday in portions of up to 1,500 words. Additionally, it contains hundreds of location-specific short stories, like the one that takes place at the intersection of Prospect Street and Massachusetts Avenue.
