I find that when I look for fiction to read, I am consciously defining the novels as pre or post 9/11, or pre or post Apartheid. Literature that chronicles the 80's, and 90's is hard to read or hold my interest.

Are others having the same experience?
It explains a trend for books like Wolf Hall and Brooklyn that stay historically clear?
