Blank Fictions: Consumerism, Culture, and the Contemporary American Novel
Pluto Press, 1998 - 175 Seiten
This study of the work of young American writers focuses on a group who appear to value supreficiality over complexity, and pulp culture over the highbrow. Previously dismissed as nihilist generation X no-hopers, Annesley attempts to position their work as analysis of late 20th century culture.
