NARCISSISTIC NARRATIVE : THE METAFICTIONAL PARADOX

LONDON: Routledge, 1991. Paperback. Reprint. "Narcissistic fiction" is here defined as fiction which includes within itself a commentary on its own narrative and/or linguistic nature. The author places this phenomenon in a historical context and discusses its implications for both the theory of the novel and for reading theory. Authors such as Nabokov, Fowles, Barth, Borges, Calvino, Carpentier, and Aquin are drawn upon. 168 pp. Some very faint scratching and rubbing to both covers, visible only in direct light. Just the very slightest amount of thumbing and wear to top and bottom corners. Some very slight shelf-creasing to edges with two small dings to bottom edge. Price sticker, 1.5 inches by 2.5 inches, to rear cover. Former owner's name in pen to half-title page. Light creasing to 3 inch by 1 inch area of half-title page and title page. A very slight amount of soiling and waving to bottom edge of text. Unmarked, save for former owner's name. NEAR FINE. Item #65720
