VNBIB: The Literary Cold War, Piette
Piette, Adam. The Literary Cold War, 1945-Vietnam. Edinburgh UP, 2009.

"Using a psychoanalytical model to discuss seminal texts of the period . . . the author offers readings that are both bizarre and uncannily convincing. His discussion of Nabokov's Lolita is particularly strong, turning as it does on both Nabokov's extra-textual writing and a careful accounting of uranium mining in the late 1940s and early 1950s."
--B. Diemert, Brescia University College

Well that seems like a new angle!
