The Vineland papers : critical takes on Pynchon's novel( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication of Thomas Pynchon's novel Vineland in 1990, 17 years after his epochal Gravity's Rainbow, received unprecedented attention from the media and tens of thousands of readers, all wondering why the novel was so long in the making and whether it would be as momentous as his last novel. The Vineland Papers is the first book-length study of Pynchon's problematic new novel: a dozen leading Pynchon critics offer their takes on the book examining it from a variety of angles: its relation to Pynchon's previous work, its humor, its use of various technical fields, its use of history and film, its politics, its structure, and its autobiographical elements. Feminist theory is brought to bear on Pynchon's representation of women in the novel by several of the contributors, and all of them write in an accessible manner so that the book will appeal to the general reader as well as the scholar. For many readers and scholars alike Pynchon is the single most important living novelist, and The Vineland Papers is invaluable for understanding how his fourth novel alters or confirms that reputation. The contributors include David Cowart, N. Katherine Hayles, David Porush, Elaine B. Safer, Joseph Slade, Joseph Tabbi, Susan Strehle, Stacey Olster, Molly Hite, William E. Grim, Eric Solomon, Andrew Gordon, and Clifford Mead
Some other frequency : interviews with innovative American authors by Larry McCaffery( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McCaffery's subjects talk about the nature of postmodernism and the crisis of representation, the ambiguities of contemporary life and the lure of literature. In his paradigm-busting introduction, McCaffery finds himself at odds with pessimistic announcements proclaiming the "death of the author" and the marginalization of language-based communication in general and fiction in particular. Judging from the examples of these interviews, the literary landscape of America is populated by an extraordinary vibrant group of authors publishing formally daring and thematically diverse fiction, though mostly outside the "official channels" of major commercial presses

The Review of contemporary fiction : William T. Vollmann, Susan Daitch, David Foster Wallace( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This inaugural Younger writers issue marks a departure for RCF in being its first not devoted to authors whose careers were either well advanced or brought to a close some years earlier... With this issue, RCF begins treating a different class of critically neglected writers, younger writers whose early works are promising enough to suggest that they will eventually achieve historical importance."--Pref
