American Postmodernism

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic, see this page.

Thick books. Sprawling plots. Improbably named characters. Reclusive authors, and strange conspiracy theories about them.

If you like writers like Thomas Pynchon, Donald Barthelme, William Gaddis, John Barth, Don Delillo, David Foster Wallace, Robert Coover and Richard Powers this may be your place.
