Postmodernism in Pieces

Materializing the Social in U.S. Fiction

Matthew Mullins

  • Redefines postmodernism as a resolutely materialist aesthetic, whereas most scholars would characterize it as an idealist paradigm
  • Argues that postmodernism is not, in fact, an ism like Romanticism or Modernism
  • Examines work by Leslie Marmon Silko, Toni Morrison, Jonathan Lethem, John Barth, David Foster Wallace, Don DeLillo, Julia Alvarez, and more
