Postmodern American Fiction

A Norton Anthology

Paula Geyh (Editor), Fred G. Leebron (Editor), Andrew Levy (Editor)


From William S. Burroughs to David Foster Wallace, Postmodern American Fiction offers up witty, risky, exhilarating, groundbreaking fiction from five decades of postwar American life.

It includes works by sixty-eight authors: short fiction, novels, cartoons, graphics, hypertexts, creative nonfiction, and theoretical writings. This is the first anthology to do full justice to the vast range of American innovation in fiction writing since 1945.
