About this title:

Synopsis: The burgeoning postmodern condition forces a reevaluation of the novel as a form; contemporary formlessness has created a new and seemingly endless range of interpretations under which the forms of the past coalesce. Martin Amis, whose novels and stories «live» this phenomenon and inform this study, has discovered an art form in the literature of decay, where traditional fictional elements, such as time, voice and motivation, have been corrupted by the twentieth century and the revitalized anti-novel. Style has overcome story in the world of Martin Amis – and perhaps in the «real» world as well.

About the Author: The Author: John A. Dern is Lecturer in English at Penn State University. He received his Ph.D. in English from Lehigh University and has published articles on varied literary topics in professional journals and newspapers.
