Continuum Contemporaries give readers accessible and informative introductions to some of the most popular, most acclaimed, and most influential vels of recent years. A team of contemporary fiction scholars from both sides of the Atlantic has been assembled to provide a through and readable analysis of each of the vels in question. The books in the series all follow the same structure: a biography of the velist, including other works, influences, and, in some cases, an interview; a full-length study of the vel, drawing out the most important themes and ideas; a summary of how the vel was received upon publication; a summary of how the vel has performed since publication, including film or television adaptations, literary prizes, and so forth; a wide range of suggestions for further reading, including web sites and discussion forums; and a list of questions for reading groups to discuss.
