I found this Literature Map through a post on the weblog of Ploughshares. The map displays authors that are in relation to each other, what ever that relation might be (content, readership &c.). It is really interesting to see who goes together with whom. Sometimes it is not comprehensible, though, why certain writers are on the same map: David Mamet, Michael Moore, James Joyce, and Donald Barthelme. Huh? Nevertheless, it is a lot of fun to check out.
Es gibt auch eine deutsche Version der Literaturlandkarte.
