Summary
"Fictions of the War on Terror takes an important new approach to contemporary debates in post-9/11 literary studies. Arguing that there are a number of contemporary novels that challenge the reductive 'us and them' binaries that have been prevalent not only in politics and the global media since 9/11, and also in many works within the emerging genre of '9/11 fiction' itself, Daniel O'Gorman eloquently demonstrates the complexities and intricacies of this challenging field. A total of eleven novels are analysed, including What Is the What by Dave Eggers (2006), Burnt Shadows by Kamila Shamsie (2009), Gods Without Men by Hari Kunzru (2011), and Open City (2011) by Teju Cole"--
