Christopher Breu is associate professor of English at Illinois State University. He is the author of Hard-Boiled Masculinities (Minnesota, 2005).
"Breu's illuminating engagement with late 20th- and 21st-century literature and theory will leave readers' understanding of both altered and refreshed."-CHOICE "Important work."-Modern Fiction Studies "Insistence of the Material offers powerful readings of the most important experimental writers since 1950, readings that demonstrate how much subversive political potential remains in literature as it emerges from the bewildering metafictional labyrinths of postmodernism. Christopher Breu takes readers on a sometimes dangerous, often disturbing but always bracing trip along the parallel cutting edges of contemporary literature and theory." -Timothy S. Murphy, author of Antonio Negri: Modernity and the Multitude
