The contemporary British novel

Author: Philip Tew
Publisher: London ; New York : Continuum, 2007.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Studies of the contemporary British novel often turn out not to be very contemporary at all. All too often the discussion is dominated by the literature of the immediate post-war years. Tew provides a fresh treatment of the theme by focusing on the work of authors who have made their reputation within the last two decades.
