Book summary

Since the '60s, a number of authors have rejected the elitism of the avant-garde while still seeking to write experimental fiction. By substituting popular culture references for the standard academic list of canonical sources, they have forged a new fiction that is increasingly being called "avant-pop." This volume collects short fictions by a number of contemporary practitioners of the form, such as William T. Vollman, Ben Marcus, and Paul Auster, as well as works by authors who first made their mark 20 or 30 years ago, such as Robert Coover, Tom Robbins, and Don Delilo. Many fun, challenging stories are collected here in an interesting attempt at delimiting a movement. [via]
