Re: RARA-AVIS: Postmodern and Hardboiled/Noir?

Date: 07 Sep 2006

Paul Auster's New York Trilogy is most certainly postmodern and noir, some of it hardboiled.

I'd add that Jack O'Connell's Quinsigamond series and much of Sallis's work exhibit postmodern elements. Those are ones I like. Steve Aylett probably also fits, but what I've read of him was a bit too gimmicky and cute for my taste.

As for a definition of postmodernism, I'll go with what Potter Stewart said about porn, I can't define it, but I know it when I see it.


ps -- I just wanted to note what a great job miker is doing moderating this month and thank him.
