Abstract:

The fiction of the 21st century has broadened the reach of the novel into increasingly personal, individual, and nontraditional literary purviews. Regional realists have become a particularly strong voice, with language becoming increasingly conversational, and with increased effects of an ever more complex society on the individual. Contemporary American fiction continues to assert the complexity and broad span of the nation and its many voices.
