The Contemporary British Novel PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Contemporary British Novel free pdf Studies of the 'contemporary' British novel often turn out not to be very contemporary at all. All too often the discussion is dominated by the literature of the immediate post-war years. Phil Tew, in contrast, provides a genuinely fresh treatment of the theme by focusing on the work of authors who have made their reputation within the last two decades. In the process he brings so-called minority writers out of theoretical ghettos and, paying their work full respect, integrates them into a synthesis of literary trends and historical context. Designed with the student reader in mind, The Contemporary British Novel will become the first point of reference for a new generation of study. Discusses the work of, amongst others: Martin Amis, J. G. Ballard, A. S. Byatt, Jonathan Coe, Angela Carter, Jim Crace, John Fowles, Kazuo Ishiguro, James Kelman, A. L. Kennedy, Hanif Kureshi, Toby Litt, Ian McEwan, Caryl Phillips, Salman Rushdie, Iain Sinclair, Zadie Smith, Will Self and Jeanette Winterson.
