Preface:

A StudyofAmerican Postmodernist Fiction by Professor Chen Shidanhas eventually met the readers. This is a monograph in English which canbe used as a textbook of American Postmodernist Fiction, a course ofundergraduates and postgraduates of English major in our colleges anduniversities. Because it is the first English textbook of this course, itspublication has an unusual meaning.

Since the publication of Catch-22 by Joseph Heller in 1961, theAmerican postmodernist fiction has been continually developing for morethan 40 years up to the present. Many famous postmodernist works offiction have already entered the classrooms of American colleges anduniversities and have become the books that graduate students must read.Since 1996, the Translations Press in Nanjing has published "A Series ofAmerican Postmodernist Novels, " translated and introduced more than 10masterpieces. But the textbooks of intensive reading and extensive readingfor the college students of English major in our country have not yetincluded the original texts of American postmodemist fiction. Though afew English departments of colleges and universities have set up thecourse American Postmodernist Fiction, the teachers and students arepuzzled for having no appropriate textbooks. A Study of AmericanPostmodernist Fiction by Professor Chen Shidan has duly met the need ofteaching for English graduate students.
