« So the monstrousness of postmodernism’s literary possibilities is the result, one the one hand, of the debunking or deconstructing of certain central conventions of nineteenth century literary realism, especially the notion of mimesis and genre, and, on the other hand, of the willingness to allow narrative’s newly released parts to float, mingle and re-cohere. The realist values the reassurance of the familiar; the excitable postmodernist – a curious bricoleur – values the beauty of the new and monstrous.»
