Top definition
A sub-genre of gothic literature that features postmodern undertones. Postmodern gothic novels are often reflective of society post 2000, highlighting fears of the loss of self, commercialism, terrorism and technology. The term "postmodern gothic" was not in use much until recent years, and became especially popular when used to describe the fictional novella "Bittersweet Symphony" by author Rebecca McNutt. Postmodern gothics are especially popular with hipsters, up-and-coming-lawyers and businessmen.
"Wow, man! This postmodern gothic is so eye-opening, the way it describes the evils of advertising and corporate greed!"

"I prefer legal thrillers over gothics, especially postmodern gothics. I hate books set in the 21st Century."
