In his seminal study No Accident, Comrade (2011),Steven Belletto draws a distinction between fictions which are about the Cold War and fictions that are of the Cold War. What is meant by the former is clear enough: these are fictions which are written or set during the Cold War period and which engage thematically with it. The latter, however, is a more fluid category whose implications can be theorized further.

What have we here, hempen hampen? St. Martin has cut the feather cloak of the swanwife into an ale-conner’s breeches. Tell her to buy me a cambric shirt and tie a knot in the handkerchief. We will stitch together green gowns and drowned men’s jerseys, wooden shoes and iron crowns. It doesn’t take a cloak of invisibility to spot the invention of the traditional kilt. In the language of fans, widow’s weeds form a hat-trick with bridal veils and christening gowns.
