Paranoia, Fear & Alienation

This product is not available in the selected currency.


Paranoid fiction is described as ""literature that explores the subjective nature of reality and how it can be manipulated by forces in power."" This essay compilation investigates common motifs found in paranoid literature-such as dystopian settings and unreliable narrators-and studies the work of prominent authors in the genre, including Philip K. Dick, William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, and more.

Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of ""Works Cited,"" along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources:
