Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This volume examines a range of novels and novellas published over the course of nearly forty years, from 1968 to 2014, including E.L. Doctorow's Andrew's Brain, John Gardner's "The King's Indian," Paul Auster's Travels in the Scriptorium, Peter Straub's Mr. X, and Joyce Carol Oates' Expensive People. These texts display one crucial unifying thread: they are doubly-mediated fictions, fictions in parentheses, so to speak. The application of narrative framing and embedding has been commonly acknowledged and abundantly researched in various works belonging to the Western literary heritage.
