London in Contemporary British Fiction PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

London in Contemporary British Fiction free pdf Contemporary writers such as Peter Ackroyd, J.G. Ballard, John King, Ian McEwan, Will Self, Iain Sinclair and Zadie Smith have been registering the changes to the social and cultural London landscape for years. This volume brings together their vivid representations of the capital. Uniting the readings are themes such as relationship between the country and the city- the capacity of satirical forms to encompass the 'real London'- spatio-temporal transformations and emergences- the relationship between multiculturalism and universalism- the underground as the spatial equivalent of London's unconsciousness and the suburbs as the frontier of the future. The volume creates a framework for new approaches to the representation of London required by the unprecedented social uncertainties of recent years: an invaluable contribution to studies of contemporary writing about London.
