Product Description

Dubbed by Jonathan Franzen the “ur-text of postwar fiction” and the “first great cultural critique, which even if Heller and Pynchon hadn’t read it while composing Catch-22 and V., managed to anticipate the spirit of both” – The Recognitions is a masterwork about art and forgery, and the increasingly thin line between the counterfeit and the fake. Gaddis anticipates by almost half a century the crisis of reality that riffs and taunts the present day, where the real and the virtual combine in alarming ways, and the sources of legitimacy and power, as often as not, remain obscure, and at large, eluding our comprehension.
