When the atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima on 6 August 1945, it precipitated a nuclear age that shaped the Cold War and post-Cold War periods. States of Suspense is about the representation of this nuclear age in United States literature from 1945-2005. The profound psychological and cultural impact of living in anticipation of the Bomb is apparent not only in end-of-the-world fantasies, but also in mainstream andpostmodern literature. This book traces the ways in which key motifs--the fragility of reality, the fear of closure, the inadequacies of language to represent the world--move between nuclear and postmodern cultures of the Cold War era. Taking three symbolically threatened environments--the home, the city, the planet--the book explores their recasting as "nuclear places" in literature, andshows how these nuclear concerns resonate with those of other cultures. States of Suspense will be of interest to students and scholars of American literature, and postmodern and technological culture.It will also be interest to those more generally intrigued by the cultural fallout of the nuclear age.
