2 - 4 weeks availability
From the new generation of London novelists, such as Martin Amis and Ian McEwan, to feminism in the writing of Angela Carter and Jeanette Winterson, Joseph Brooker relates developments in fiction, poetry and drama to social change. He shows how working class writers such as James Kelman and Tony Harrison protested against Thatcherism and explores the voices of Black British writers including Fred D'Aguiar and Hanif Kureishi. As for the theory of the decade, Brooker relates the rise of postmodernism to the popularity of self-conscious modes of writing and other developments in literary theory."
Joseph Brooker is Reader, Department of English and Humanities at the Birkbeck College, University of London.
