The book focuses on the major techniques employed by postmodern writers of fiction. Various techniques like burlesque, irony, parody, black humor, circular language, echolalia, repetition, contradiction, transition, comic reversal, oxymoron, deflation and syllogism are studied deeply. Almost all the major critics of post modernism like Ihab Hasan, Linda Hutcheon, Charles B. Harris, Bruce Janoff, Jerome Klinkowitz, Lyotard, Sanford Pinsker, Schulz, Lindsey Tucker, Patricia Waugh, Brom Weber, Steven Weise Weisenburger and Mathew Winston are quoted. Joseph Heller s works are cited extensively for illustration of various techniques. The entropic life vision of the postmodern writers is given emphasis in the book. On the whole the book is an extensive study of postmodern techniques and can be called the first of its kind in India.
