Abstract

The short stories in American Idyll: Stories experiment with the boundaries of traditional fiction by often drawing on nonfiction forms and styles to explore the roles that pop culture, locality, and cultural narratives play not only in individual lives, but also in broader terms by questioning how these elements contribute to American culture as a living, organic entity.

Often playful in tone and execution, the stories in this collection aim to inhabit a spectrum: from voice-led narratives to historical fiction to textured ethereal interactions with established cultural events and persons and wholly fictional accounts of American pop culture.
