Understanding Ian McEwan by David Malcolm ( )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Understanding Ian McEwan provides a full discussion of the fiction written by one of Britain's most highly regarded novelists and the winner of the 1998 Booker Prize. David Malcolm places Ian McEwan's work - admired by critics for its polished, understated treatment of themes of aberrance and obsession - in the context of British literature's particular dynamism in the last decades of the twentieth century. He also examines McEwan's relationship to feminism, concern with rationalism and science, use of moral perspective, and proclivity toward fragmentation."--BOOK JACKET
Understanding Graham Swift by David Malcolm ( )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In separate chapters Malcolm considers each of Swift's seven novels, from The Sweet Shop Owner, published in 1980, through The Light of Day, published in 2003. Malcolm explores Swift's presentation of family conflict and emotional and psychological disturbance, his use of complex narrative technique and genre mixture, and his interest in metafictional issues. Malcolm underscores the novelist's debt to earlier writers, most especially George Eliot, Charles Dickens, and William Faulkner, and his recurrent concern with the lives of socially humble characters."
Jean Rhys : a study of the short fiction by Cheryl Alexander Malcolm ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Jean Rhys: A Study of the Short Fiction, Cheryl Alexander Malcolm and David Malcolm provide the first full-length critical analysis of Rhys's contributions to the short story genre. Maintaining that Rhys's overriding interest was the outsider - "the underdog, the normally silenced, the excluded, the ignored"--The Malcolms examine the stories from the perspective of this motif. Selected stories - among them "Illusion," "Mannequin," and "Let Them Call It Jazz" - are given in-depth treatment, as are the heretofore neglected technical aspects of Rhys's work: narration, style, plot, action, and setting
