'Meticulously researched, lucidly argued, and accessible at all times, The Anti-Hero in the American Novel is a welcome addition to studies of the anti-hero in 1960s American fiction. Simmons offers a textual and contextual analysis of a range of countercultural novels, some already well known and others unjustly neglected that will appeal to students, scholars, and anyone with an interest in American literature.' Chris Gair, Birmingham University, UK and author of The American Counterculture
'Simmons offers a welcome new perspective on the anti-hero in 1960s American culture. His book qualifies conventional post-structuralist readings of this important phenomenon and presents a lucid, informed thesis that is both original and convincing.' Paul McDonald, Senior Lecturer in American Literature and Coordinator of the Creative and Professional Writing Program, University of Wolverhampton, UK
