Format: Paperback
The best thing about this anthology compiled by Robert L. Mclaughlin is the broad and obscure selection of stories. They're not all good, but they paint a decent picture of the broadness of postmodernist fiction. Despite the punctuational confusion of John Barth's 'Menelaiad' and John Edgar Wideman's utterly awful 'Surfiction', there are several rather interesting and original pieces. Felipe Alfau's 'A Character' takes a dive into meta-fiction, Robert Coover's 'You Must Remember This' takes an ingenious and decidedly vulgar approach to Casablanca, and Donald Barthelme's 'The Balloon' uses magical realism to tell a rather sweet story. There's even a little Gertrude Stein ditty. All in all, despite its uneveness, creative writers looking for more unconventional approaches or people just interested in postmodernist short fiction should find this anthology helpful and interesting.
