About this product
- DescriptionA Concise Companion to Contemporary British Fiction offers an authoritative overview of contemporary British fiction in its social, political, and ecomic contexts. It focuses on the fiction that has emerged since the late 1970s, roughly since the start of the Thatcher era. It comprises original essays from major scholars. Topics range from the rise and fall of the post colonial vel to controversies over the celebrity author. The emphasis is on the whole fiction scene, from bookstores and prizes to the changing ecomics of film adaptation. This book enables students to read contemporary works of British fiction with a much clearer sense of where they fit within British cultural life.
