Sample text

The second concerned the persistence of essentially pre-modern ways of life in the context of American hypermodernity. In some ways, these issues were related as two elements of a new cosmopolitan vision of America. For the bohemians of Greenwich Village, America was a rich amalgam of immigrant and indigenous cultures. Polemicists including Van Wyck Brooks and Randolph Bourne asserted that Americans had for too long viewed themselves as England’s cultural inferiors; with the increasing financial and industrial power of the United States, it was time to assert a distinctively American cultural identity.

Salinger’s novel repeats the dual responses that have characterized the New York City novel from the first; in it, Manhattan exudes a surface glamour and excitement that hides a pervasive spiritual emptiness. In 1964, Hubert Selby, Jr. published Last Exit to Brooklyn, a New York novel that was dramatically, even shockingly, different from those that had preceded it.

Notable examples of this are Stein’s thousand-page long family epic, The Making of Americans (1925) and the linked autobiographical fictions of Thomas Wolfe (Look Homeward, Angel, 1929; Of Time and the River, 1935; The Web and the Rock, 1939; You Can’t Go Home Again, 1940).
