I spent the first ten weeks of my summer working for my campus' press. We publish Chicago studies books but also innovative literature. I ran across this link to a list of 61 "essential" Postmodern reads. I have been asked (and asked again!): What exactly is innovative and Postmodern lit? The concept is very hard to define. I suggest reading a couple examples. I don't a hundred percent agree with all books on this list (and I'd add another: The Jiri Chronicles and Other Fictions by Debra Di Blasi, my favorite innovative piece from the summer), but it's worth a look!
