Roel van den Oever zooms in on four instances of the cultural representation of Momism: The grotto, by Grace Zaring Stone, Suddenly last summer, by Tennessee Williams, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, and Portnoy's complaint, by Philip Roth, to offer new commentary on canonical texts, a particular moment in American culture, and future reading strategies."--P.
