    Abstract

    For his 2010 novel, C, Tom McCarthy has been diagnosed by Justus Nieland as a “forensic scientist of modernism” (Nieland 2012, 570). In this chapter I instead situate McCarthy within a broader intertextual scope that stretches into the postmodern frame and suggest that it would make sense to treat seriously the situation of McCarthy within postmodernism, or at least to investigate how his novels interact with this classification.
