Summary
'After Critique' identifies an ontological turn in contemporary US fiction that distinguishes our current literary moment from both postmodernism and so-called post-postmodernism. This turn to ontology takes many forms, but in general this book highlights a body of literature - work from Colson Whitehead, Uzodinma Iweala, Karen Yamashita, Helena Viramontes, Percival Everett, Mat Johnson, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Tom McCarthy - that favours presence over absence, being over meaning, and connection over reference.
