MEDIA REVIEWS
The author has done something undeniably important in explicating the blasphemous play of several important modernist artists. He has also opened the door for consideration of the nature and function of blasphemy in the work of authors who do sometimes validate the truth claims of religion - figures such as Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene, Shusaku Endo, and Marilynne Robinson. One of the greatest accomplishments of Blasphemous Modernism is that it forces us to return to the scene of some of modernism's greatest crimes against God and ask, not for the first time, if any crime were actually committed. * Martin Lockerd, Modernism/Modernity *
Pinkerton's study is textually focused and compiles a lively and readable collection of examples of blasphemy. ... an important contribution to rethinking the engagement of modernist writers with religion, and makes a persuasive case for the importance of blasphemy as a category of study in its own right. * Imogen Woodberry, Los Angeles Review of Books *
