9780817354060: Paper Empire: William Gaddis and the World System

In 2002, following the posthumous publication of William Gaddis' collected nonfiction, his final novel, and Jonathan Franzen's lengthy attack on him in The New Yorker, a number of partisan articles appeared in support of Gaddis' legacy. In a review in The London Review of Books, critic Hal Foster suggested a reason for disparate responses to Gaddis' reputation: Gaddis' unique hybridity, his ability to write in the gap between two dispensations, between science and literature, theory and narrative, and different orders of linguistic imagination. Gaddis (1922-1998) is often cited as the link between literary modernism and postmodernism in the United States. His novels - The Recognitions, JR, Carpenter's Gothic, and A Frolic of His Own - are notable in the ways that they often restrict themselves to the language and communication systems of the worlds he portrays.

About the Author :

Joseph Tabbi is author of Cognitive Fictions and Postmodern Sublime: Technology and American Writing from Mailer to Cyberpunk. Rone Shavers is a Ph.D candidate in English at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Review :

"Paper Empire" fills the gap in the scholarly literature on Gaddis. I know of no other monograph or collection of essays that addresses in such a focused way the contexts, especially the systematic contexts, of Gaddis's writing--Brian McHale, author of "The Obligation Toward the Difficult Whole: Postmodernist Long Poems"

"Paper Empire" gathers a fine set of essays on a multi-award winning yet still under-appreciated novelist. . . . Tabbi and Shavers have given us a broad range of essays by American and European scholars, some of them fresh, compelling voices among critics of contemporary fiction and Gaddis's work—Steven Weisenburger, author of "Modern Medea: A Family Story of Slavery and Child-Murder from the Old South"
