Hysterical realism, also called recherché postmodernism, is a term coined in 2000 by English critic James Wood to describe what he sees as a literary genre typified by a strong contrast between elaborately absurd prose, plotting, or characterization, on the one hand, and careful, detailed investigations of real, specific social phenomena on the other. Wood introduced the term in an essay on Zadie Smith's White Teeth, which appeared in the July 24, 2000 issue of The New Republic

Hysterical realism is basically synecdochic: it substitutes a finite part for an infinite whole. In case I haven’t already showed my hand, I am in sympathy with this trend. Hysterical realism treats the world as an infinite network, but we already have an infinite network, the Internet, and our nose is rubbed in it on an hourly basis. We don’t need more of that-more hysteria. We need novels that help us manage hysteria instead.

Hysterical realism, also called recherché postmodernism or maximalism is a literary genre characterized by chronic length, manic characters, madding action, and frequent digressions on topics secondary to the story. The term hysterical realism was coined by James Wood in an essay on Zadie Smith's White Teeth, titled "The Smallness of the 'Big' Novel: Human, All Too Inhuman", which appeared in the July 17, 2000 issue of The New Republic and was later reprinted in Wood's 2004 book, The Irresponsible Self: On Laughter and the Novel
