Post-Modern Aura - The Act of Fiction in an Age of Inflation

"Charles Newman's The Post-Modern Aura is a real eye-opener; the best thing I've read on the state of American culture in a long time, and grounded, moreover, in a tough-minded analysis of the economics of publishing--something unheard of in the annals of literary criticism." --Christopher Lasch, author of The Culture of Narcissism

"Newman's book is a hybrid, a combination of literary criticism, cultural analysis, political polemic, economic forecast, and historical lament. . . . Newman makes us feel that the future of the arts is very much involved in the health of the culture at every level, and he manages this without falling into the reductive equations that describe novels or paintings as reflections of this thing or that." --Robert Boyers, Salmagundi
