Despite the title, the introduction to this work cautions readers to be wary of such labels as ``postmodernism'' and to think more generally of ``a highly complex set of ideas or tendencies.'' The work itself examines texts from the early 1960s whose common trait is the rejection of realism, however defined. Part 1, ``Overview Articles,'' is divided into Postmodern Fiction (13 essays) and Criticism (2 essays). Part 2, ``Authors and Critics of Postmodern Fiction,'' consists of some 100 short bio-bibliographical essays that include notes and selected bibliography of primary and secondary sources. The scope of the work is broad, with European and Latin American influences well represented. Recommended for collections that emphasize fiction of the past two decades. Charles E.
