520    This book investigates a new form of fiction that is 
       currently emerging in contemporary literature across the 
       globe. 'Novels of the contemporary extreme' - from North 
       and South America, from Europe, and the Middle East - are 
       set in a world both similar to and different from our own:
       a hyper real, often apocalyptic world progressively 
       invaded by popular culture, permeated with technology and 
       dominated by destruction. While their writing is commonly 
       classified as 'hip' or 'underground' literature, authors 
       of contemporary extreme novels have often been the center 
       of public controversy and scandal; they, and their work, 
       become international bestsellers. This collection of 
       essays identifies and describes this international 
       phenomenon, investigating the appeal of these novels' 
       styles and themes, the reasons behind their success, and 
       the fierce debates they provoked
