Description

This text offers an explanation of why boredom both haunts and motivates the literary imagination. Moving from Samuel Johnson and Jane Austen to Donald Barthelme and Anita Brookner, the author shows us how we arrived in a postmodern world where boredom is the all-encompassing name we give our discontent.
