  • The Politics of Escapistry: Harry Houdini, Nostalgia, and the Turn from
           Critique in Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
    • Abstract: Late in Michael Chabon's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Joe Kavalier returns home from years of self-imposed exile with 102 boxes of old comics in tow. Having endured the Holocaust, warfare, and addiction, Joe loves these comics for the escape they offer: when he is immersed in their pages, the ever-present "pain of his loss … melted away without him even noticing" (576). "[S]uch a feat of escape," the narrator declares, is "the genuine magic of art," and the fact that escapism "remain[s] so universally despised" indicates only how "fucked-up and broken" the real world is. In Kavalier & Clay, Chabon aims to correct this injustice by illuminating the therapeutic value of escapist ... Read More

  • Katherine Mansfield's Animal Aesthetics
    • Abstract: In a letter to John Middleton Murry, sent on 25 November 1919 from Ospedaletti, Katherine Mansfield responds critically to Sydney Waterlow's lead article in that week's Athenaeum, which marked the centenary of George Eliot's birth:I dont [sic] think S. W. [Sydney Waterlow] brought it off with George Eliot. He never gets under way. The cartwheels want oiling. I think, too, he is ungenerous. She was a deal more than that. Her English, warm, ruddy quality is hardly mentioned. … But think of some of her pictures of country life—the breadth—the sense of sun lying on long barns—great warm kitchens at twilight when the men came home from the fields—the feeling of beasts horses and cows—the peculiar passion she has for ...

  • We Wear the White Mask: John Cheever Writes Race
    • Abstract: The world of John Updike … does not impinge on my world. On the other hand, the world of John Cheever did engage me.In a 1984 New York Times interview, a nearly sixty-year-old James Baldwin was asked whether there were any white writers of his generation that he would describe as "witnesses," a term Baldwin often used to describe his desire to represent the American experience as structured by oppression and exploitation but also endurance (Lester 228). Baldwin responded by insisting that since "most white American writers seem to have cut off their heritage at Ellis Island," their "testimony" typically failed to "include enough." After naming Norman Mailer as a white writer he believed fell short of the title ... Read More

  • Dispatches from the Drug Wars: Ishmael Reed, Oscar Zeta Acosta, and the
           Viet Cong of America
    • Abstract: Weeks before the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) launched the Tet Offensive, setting the United States and its South Vietnamese allies back on their heels, John Steinbeck IV asserted in a Washingtonian article that some seventy-five percent of American combat soldiers were getting stoned on a regular basis (34). The feature article, "The Importance of Being Stoned in Vietnam," caused a stir when it arrived on newsstands in late 1967. It was the first time most Americans had heard of an alleged drug crisis in the armed forces, and it wouldn't be the last. The son of the Nobel Prize-winning novelist, Steinbeck had volunteered for the US Army in 1966 and served one tour in Vietnam, where he wrote for Armed Forces ... Read More

  • "Unconsciously Influenced": Alan Burns, Ian McEwan, and the Lasting
           Legacies of Postwar British Experimental Fiction
    • Abstract: While Alan Burns, as Jeannette Baxter suggests, has appeared to historians of the novel to have "fallen off the literary map" since the 1960s, Burns and his contemporary experimental writers have resurfaced in recent discussions of postwar British fiction (55).1 For a brief moment in the late 1960s, Burns was at the heart of a constellation of experimental writers, including Eva Figes, B. S. Johnson, and Ann Quin, whose works revived literary modernism in an attempt to bring an alternative imaginary community into being. Burns's fiction won him the recognition of an influential cultural institution, the Arts Council of Great Britain, and its literary chair Angus Wilson. Burns subsequently became the inaugural ...

  • Interrogative Justice in Héctor Tobar's The Tattooed Soldier
    • Abstract: To imagine justice for the victims of acts of mass cruelty and collective terror entails significant risk. For the policymaker, imagining reparation may risk overturning the social order on which her positions depends. For the novelist, the act of imagining may quarantine legacies of atrocity into a handful of characters and discrete narrative acts.
      Authors of the Central American diaspora evade the representation of justice, preoccupied instead with representing counterinsurgent war's costs and survival in its aftermath. Héctor Tobar's The Tattooed Soldier features the most resolute, if not the grisliest, realization of justice in the literature of Central American diaspora: revenge against the former commander of ...

  • Negative Paradise: Rethinking Anglophone and World Literature as Literary
           Dubbing
    • Abstract: Robert Olen Butler's story "Mid-Autumn" opens with a striking description of an intimate moment between a Vietnamese mother and her unborn child. The mother is married to an American veteran of the Vietnam War, although she still mourns the wartime death—possibly at the hands of American soldiers—of her former Vietnamese lover. When the story begins, she is still adjusting to life in the thick humidity of southern Louisiana and attempting to learn English. The mother speaks to her child, fathered by the American veteran, in her native tongue of Vietnamese. Butler, however, renders the exchange in English:We are lucky, you and I, to be Vietnamese so that I can speak to you even before you are born. This is why I ... Read More

  • This Thing Called the World: The Contemporary Novel as Global Form by
           Debjani Ganguly (review)
    • Abstract: I write this review in November 2016, soon after Donald Trump was elected US president twenty-seven years to the day after the fall of the Berlin Wall. One of This Thing Called the World's most valuable contributions is the attention it accords to "the historically significant threshold of 1989" in shaping our current Manichean political climate (1). Notwithstanding recent scholarly emphasis on the World Trade Center attacks and their aftermath, I agree with Debjani Ganguly's thesis that 1989—a year significant for, but not reducible to, the collapse of communism—marked the most profound shift in geopolitics and literary aesthetics since the revolutionary movements of 1968. However, from my perspective as a ... Read More

  • The Arresting Eye: Race and the Anxiety of Detection by Jinny Huh (review)
    • Abstract: The Arresting Eye is a varied interdisciplinary and comparative work that examines a wide set of cultural productions—from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day—in which the act of racial passing is intrinsically linked to the anxiety of detection, a type of narrative that the author generically defines as "race detection" (6). The discernment or acknowledgment of race, but also its misperception, is a process that creates anxiety both on the part of the detected and the detector, or detective. Huh's argument consists in applying the concept of ratiocinative detection introduced by Edgar Allan Poe and developed by Arthur Conan Doyle to a postcolonial reading of texts that question one's ability and ...

  • If God Meant to Interfere: American Literature and the Rise of the
           Christian Right by Christopher Douglas (review)
    • Abstract: Christopher Douglas opens his book If God Meant to Interfere: American Literature and the Rise of the Christian Right with what he calls a "vivid literary snapshot" (2), one likely familiar to literary critics who have followed the rise of so-called postsecular literary studies. The snapshot in question appears in Don DeLillo's White Noise (1985); it is Jack Gladney's conversation with a nun while being treated for a gunshot wound to his wrist in a Catholic hospital. "As belief shrinks from the world," the nun tells him, "people find it more necessary than ever that someone believe" (qtd in. Douglas 1–2). Accordingly, Catholic nuns fulfill a kind of surrogate role in a secular age: "We are your fools, your ... Read More

  • Topologies of Fear in Contemporary Fiction: The Anxieties of
           Post-Nationalism and Counter Terrorism by Scott McClintock (review)
    • Abstract: Although he examines contemporary Indian and US novels to interrogate "the impact of global terror networks and state counter-terrorism on 20th-century fiction and culture," Scott McClintock is much more invested in the political and transnational stakes inherent to reproductions of terrorism, with his close readings often serving as anecdotal offerings to the book's more central concerns (1). The imperative concern for scholars of terrorism—on which the project rests—is our ethical obligation to expand readings of terrorism beyond the exclusionary parameters of the 9/11 attacks, specifically as a means of recovering transnational legacies of terror that figure into its varied yet circular manifestations in the ...

  • Precious Perversions: Humor, Homosexuality, and the Southern Literary
           Canon by Tison Pugh (review)
    • Abstract: Southern regional literary studies is a vibrant and well-developed field. In the past two decades, Thadious M. Davis, Tara McPherson, Patricia Yaeger, and Richard Gray, among others, have published major studies. This body of scholarship charts an understanding of southern regionalism that expands the canon by departing, at least somewhat, from parochialism and insularity. In the last dozen years alone, Louisiana State University Press has advanced the field with several publications, including Scott Romine's The Real South: Southern Narrative in the Age of Cultural Reproduction, Michael Kreyling's The South That Wasn't There: Postsouthern Memory and History, Martyn Bone's The Postsouthern Sense of Place in ...

  • British Writers and the Approach of World War II by Steve Ellis (review)
    • Abstract: The period between the Munich Agreement of September 1938 and the start of the Blitz in May 1940 is undeniably a distinct moment in British cultural, social, and political history. Steve Ellis's sharp new study addresses the literature of this "long 1939" (7), stretching from the high point of appeasement until the end of the Phoney War. British Writers and the Approach of World War II argues with E. M. Forster that there is a particular "1939 state" (1): a psychological, political, and social ferment characterized by anxiety and despair at the coming war, but also listless anticipation and cautious hopes for regeneration and renewal. Aiming to overturn the overly neat periodization of literary history into decades ... Read More

  • Cormac McCarthy and the Signs of Sacrament: Literature, Theology, and the
           Moral of Stories by Matthew L. Potts (review)
    • Abstract: An old scalp hunter hesitates before gunning down his teenage adversary. A surveyor marks out a perimeter fence across plains strewn with the carcasses of slaughtered bison, his slow progress tracked by roaming bone pickers. A defeated sheriff, his county in bloody chaos, dreams that his father rides on ahead, through the mountains and into the night, establishing an encampment in wait for his son. A fisherman shares his catch with the goatman and a boy hands a dipper of water down to construction workers in a riverside ditch. A young family takes in a timeworn cowboy: he shares his stories, his skills; they grant hospitality. Somewhere in a world of pure terror, of inescapable violence, a man washes the ... Read More

  • Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonial
           Capitalism by Iyko Day (review)
    • Abstract: In Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonialism, Iyko Day insightfully approaches the analysis of North American settler colonialism through Asian Americanist critique. Operating in a framework that crosses the Canada-US border, Alien Capital argues that Asian Americans personify abstract value in North American settler colonial capitalism and provide a racial target for the anxieties of settlers reacting to capitalist abstraction. Day's argument hinges on the ways that settler colonial glorification of the concrete—as exemplified in whiteness and the nuclear family and revolving around settler appropriations of indigenous relations with place (in which settlers substitute themselves as ...

  • Cold War Friendships: Korea, Vietnam, and Asian American Literature by
           Josephine Nock-Hee Park (review)
    • Abstract: Josephine Park's latest book is an ambitious, engaging, and readable account of Asian allies in US cultural productions about the two events most closely linked with Cold War conflicts: the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The Cold War, as Park points out, was a struggle over ideology between US capitalism and Soviet communism. For these superpowers, the wars conducted on foreign soil in Asia demanded not only the militarized labor of the local population; they were also ventures in a more abstract, yet all-encompassing project of persuasion, affiliation, sympathy, and attachment. Drawing from both literature and film, Park shows how the figure of the friendly Asian—who, in this context, must transcend simple ... Read More

  • Reading Trauma Narratives: The Contemporary Novel and the Psychology of
           Oppression by Laurie Vickroy (review)
    • Abstract: Laurie Vickroy's Reading Trauma Narratives focuses on literary works that bring out the connections between individual trauma and systems of social oppression. Vickroy shows how reading fiction by Margaret Atwood, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Chuck Palahniuk, and Jeanette Winterson can bring readers to see the connections between individual trauma and broader cultural pathologies, especially those caused by the power relations inherent to class, gender, sexuality, and race. Her study makes a major contribution to contemporary approaches to trauma that broaden the concept of trauma from the personal to the collective and from the idea of a single overwhelming event to the chronic trauma experienced by ...
