After the Fall presents a timely and provocative examination of the impact and implications of 9/11 and the war on terror on American culture and literature.

  • Presents the first detailed interrogation of U.S. writing in a time of crisis
  • Develops a timely and provocative arguement about literature and trauma
  • Relates U.S. writing since 9/11 to crucial social and historical changes in the U.S. and elsewhere
  • Places U.S. writing in the context of the transformed position of the U.S. in a world characterized by political, economic, and military crisis; transnational drift; the resurgence of religious fundamentalism; and the apparent triumph of global capitalism
