Bleeding Edge, Neo-Liberalism, and the 9/11 Novel.

  This article argues that Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge (2013)
can be read within the canon of 9/11 novels in unexpected and productive ways. Its rich, intertwined narrative of the Internet and 9/11 both echoes early 9/11 novels and departs from them as it builds a trenchant critique of neoliberalism.
