More > chance encounter brings Anna into the company of Donald Firkin, a divorced English professor who soon discovers that Anna’s patient makes all too much sense, just not according to modern science.

Laughing at the Darkness: Postmodernism and Optimism in American Humour By Paul McDonald

Paul McDonald’s book is the second in the Humanities Ebooks Contemporary American Literature Series, edited by Christopher Gair and Aliki Varvogli. Given that postmodernism has been associated... More > with doubt, chaos, relativism and the disappearance of reality, it may appear difficult to reconcile with American optimism.

Paul McDonald is the author of three other HEB titles, The Philosophy of Humour, Reading Morrison's Beloved, and Reading Heller's Catch-22, all available from Lulu.< Less

And I have no defense to offer other than to say that I was driven by the fear of descending into darkness and madness.< Less
