As American as Mom, Baseball, and Apple Pie

Constructing Community in Contemporary American Horror Fiction

Book - 2001
Rate this:
This book does nothing less than redefine the very genre of horror fiction, calling into question the usual conventions, motifs, and elements. Unlike many critics of this genre, Linda Holland-Toll sees dis/affirmative horror fiction acting neither to soothe fears nor reduce them to the vicarious #147;thrills #145;n' chills" mode, but as intensifying the fears inherent in everyday life.
