Show Summary Details


This chapter functions as a concluding microcosm—a subregion, if you will—of this section on region and place. In addition to bringing to light some deserving 21st century writers this book otherwise would not address, the compressed book review format of these pieces forces my interpretive hand in places, demanding I make judgments and declarations which likely would remain more nuanced and considered in the more leisurely, extended essay context. Each review also reflects, to varying extents, the literary landscape during the particular year in which its book appeared.

Keywords: Microcosm; Subregion; 21st century writers; Literary landscape
