Synopsis:

Reconsidering the Postmodern takes the reader on a whirlwind tour through European national literatures. Focusing on novels by authors as diverse as Arnon Grunberg, Michel Houellebecq, Aleksander Hemon and Javier Marías, twelve literary experts reflect on postmodernism and its aftereffects in contemporary fiction. These essays are personal, ironic, and historical without being nostalgic, while reassessing the constantly evolving state of the European novel and the way in which postmodernism has permanently altered the face of fiction. Reconsidering the Postmodern is an important qualitative evaluation of the literary value and legacy of the postmodernism movement.

About the Author:

Thomas Vaessens is professor of Dutch literature at the University of Amsterdam. Yra van Dijk is assistant professor in Dutch literature at the University of Amsterdam.
