Krzysztof Andrzejcak, THE WRITER IN THE WRITING: AUTHOR AS HERO IN POSTWAR AMERICAN FICTION, Lodz, Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Lódzkiego, 1996, 170 pages.

Characteristically, the writer-heroes of the past two decades, while declaring themselves repulsed by the deterioration of life in the United States, show an amasing aptitude to adjust to its manifest evils and conflicts. Their castigations of corruption, falsehood and intrigue provide an opportunity to explore the labyrinths of the postmodern psyche. They do not act so much as adversaries of the American order, but as more or less serious impersonators or manipulators of its deviant possibilities. They are not dissenters, but utlilizers and exploiters of dissension.
