    I have a love of post-modern reading. I really enjoyed The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon, White Noise by Don Dellilo, Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut, Watchmen by Alan Moore, I'm currently enjoying The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami and I have on my to-read list: If on a winter's night a traveler, American Psycho, V., Naked Lunch, The Sotweed Factor, Pale Fire, Time's. This volume is a challenge, not a summary of fragile dubiosities. No mystery hangs over it. Underlying it is the assumption that science and the machine are two invincible facts with which all must reckon who write, teach, preach, lead, or practice the arts in our time.

    The illuminating introduction of this book engages the readers to begin their journey into the postmodern domain by situating it within the extensive universe of Afro-American literature. Fresh insights into the realm of postmodernism from the perspective of Afro-American consciousness are delivered with consistency of expression.   An Essential Postmodern Reading List. By Emily Temple. In true postmodern form, the whole book is a huge comment on its own bookishness, giving you hints on how to read it .

Caputo, Jacques Derrida, and Jean-Luc Nancy). The arguments over postmodernism are among the most important intellectual debates of our time.
