The world reflected in post modernist fiction is one of chance and randomness devoid of historical intelligibility Stacey Olster challenges this view by distinguishing American post modernism with respect to the views of historical processes that its practitioners share Arguing that their experience of communism proved instrumental in shaping the historical perspective of novelists who began writing after World War II Olster examines their change in perspective in the 1950s after historical events forced them to acknowledge the failure of the communist ideal in Russia Focusing on Norman Mailer Thomas Pynchon John Barth Robert Coover and E L Doctorow Olster portrays the idiosyncratic but consistent model of history that each began to construct in his work in order to preserve the illusion of an ordered sense of time The author defines the qualities the writers share that form a common sensibility a vision of historical movement taking the shape of an open ended spiral a refusal to accept the inevitability of apocalypse and a conscious return to the traditions of earlier American authors

Review:

"Mr. Rovere's book ranges widely over the contemporary scene and includes perceptive studies of Justice Holmes, Wendell Willkie, Harold Ickes, Ezra Pound, George Orwell. One particularly acute and sober study of the power problem, The Interlocking Overlappers, obviously first put the author on the track of the Establishment. Astute, scholarly, and witty throughout, Mr. Rovere is one of the most refreshing political commentators we now have."-Atlantic Monthly
