The Avant-Pop Anthology

Some of the hottest writers of the 90’s shared a subversive aesthetic sensibility, “avant-pop,” that drew on the forms, images, slogans, characters, and narrative archetypes of our multidimensional, information-dense culture—cartoons, films, music videos, advertising, and rock music—to explore and critically examine that culture.

Each of these thirty-two works delves into the deeper metaphorical implications of this pop cultural imagery to convey a turn toward overstimulation and hyper-consumption in American life, and to explore issues of personality and identity.

Paul Auster, David Blair, Robert Coover, Ricardo Cruz, Susan Daitch, Don DeLillo, Rikki Ducornet, Bret Easton Ellis, Steve Erickson, Lauren Fairbanks, William Gibson, Steve Katz, Mark Leyner, Ben Marcus, Derek Pell, Tom Robbins, Bruce Sterling, Ronald Sukenick, Lynne Tillman, Gerald Vizenor, William T. Vollmann, David Foster Wallace, Curtis White, Stephen Wright and others.

This provocative, stylistically experimental work is truly literature for the twenty-first century.
