Críticas:

Lee Konstantinou s "Cool Characters" is the best study of post-1945 fiction that I have read since Mark McGurl s "The Program Era," and it will no doubt be as influential.--Andrew Hoberek, author of "The Twilight of the Middle Class"" "Cool Characters" is a major work of criticism that promises to transform the study of post World War II American literature. It will be of enormous interest to graduate students and professors in the field, as well as to anyone interested in the state of contemporary literature.--Michael Clune, author of "White Out"" Excellent, well-read and well-written [An] insightful, provocative and necessary book in literary studies.--Robert Eaglestone"Times Higher Education" (04/28/2016)" "Cool Characters" is a remarkably thorough work of literary scholarship, most valuable for how it unravels the political thinking of canonical American writers (Ralph Ellison, Norman Mailer), as well as some celebrated contemporary writers.--Maggie Doherty"Dissent" (07/01/2016) A crisply intelligent and very readable study of irony's literary trajectory.--Dustin Illingworth"Literary Hub" (02/25/2016) Excellent, well-read and well-written...[An] insightful, provocative and necessary book in literary studies.--Robert Eaglestone"Times Higher Education" (04/28/2016) An impressive breadth of scholarship...Each chapter offers new insights...Each of the book's characterological types exemplifies a style of engagement with political and economic realities; by approaching recent American fiction in such a novel way, Konstantinou contributes not only to literary studies but to our ongoing discussion of those realities as well.--Benjamin Madden"Times Literary Supplement" (03/15/2017) Konstantinou tells the story of 'how postmodernism became historical' with some of the verve of a novelist, but without sacrificing any of the virtues we expect to find in the work of a top-notch cultural critic. It is, in the most surprising way, a character-driven story, and one that sets out to answer a key question about our now routinely ironic culture: how might we take it and ourselves seriously again?--Mark McGurl, author of The Program Era Lee Konstantinou's Cool Characters is the best study of post-1945 fiction that I have read since Mark McGurl's The Program Era, and it will no doubt be as influential.--Andrew Hoberek, author of The Twilight of the Middle Class Cool Characters is a major work of criticism that promises to transform the study of post-World War II American literature.

Reseña del editor:

Charting a new course in the criticism of postwar fiction, Cool Characters examines the status of irony in American cultural and political life, showing how it migrated from the countercultural margins of the 1950s to the cultural mainstream of the 1980s. Along the way, irony was absorbed into postmodern theory and ultimately become a target of recent writers who have sought to create a practice of "postirony" that might move beyond its limitations. Irony has been theorized from countless angles, but Cool Characters argues that it is best understood as an attitude toward the world embodied in different character types. Lee Konstantinou traces five types-hipster, punk, believer, coolhunter, occupier-in new interpretations of Ralph Ellison, Thomas Pynchon, Kathy Acker, Dave Eggers, William Gibson, Jennifer Egan, Jonathan Lethem, Rachel Kushner, and others. For earlier generations of writers, irony was something vital to be embraced, but beginning with David Foster Wallace, dissatisfaction with irony's alleged tendency to promote cynicism and passivity gained force. Postirony-the end point in an arc that begins with naive belief, passes through irony, and arrives at a new form of contingent conviction-illuminates the literary environment that has prevailed in the United States since the 1990s.
