From the Back Cover:

What is American literature’s purpose, and does itcontinue to have enduring value? Where is AmericanLiterature? offers a spirited and compelling argument forrethinking the way we view American literature in relation toarguably the most muscular and robust nation on the world stageover the past 100 years,  and demonstrates why we still needit.

Levander challenges the very idea of American literature,placing it in a globalized context, and even subtlyundermining the notion of the author. Refusing to speak of AmericanLiterature as a body of work, Levander instead sees the genre as avaried and unrelated assortment of multilingual forms, ranging frominstruction manuals and Twitter feed to novels and poetry. Theoriginal - and at times irreverent - perspectives will change theway we consider American Literature in the future, while offeringall of us a better, deeper, and more enlightened understanding ofwhy American literature continues to matter.
