Does the novel have a future? Questions of this kind, which are as old as the novel itself, acquired a fresh urgency at the end of the twentieth-century with the rise of new media and the relegation of literature to the margins of American culture. As a result, anxieties about readership, cultural authority, and literary value have come to preoccupy a second generation of postmodern novelists. Through close analysis of several major novels of the past decade--including works by Don DeLillo, Philip Roth, Kathryn Davis, Jonathan Franzen, and Richard Powers--Late Postmodernism examines the forces shaping contemporary literature and the remarkable strategies American writers have adopted to make sense of their place in the culture.

"[Jeremy Green] offers a canny, pointed, and articulate assessment of the state of 'postmodern fiction' on the hinge between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries."-Patrick O'Donnell, Michigan State University



"Professor Green's Late Postmodernism should be welcomed by those who still regard literary fiction as one of the great American art forms. It makes a compelling argument for the novel's prospects in the new media age." - Joseph M. Conte, University of Buffalo
