A Companion to the British and Irish novel 1945–2000

A Companion to the British and Irish Novel 1945–2000 serves as an extended introduction and reference guide to the British and Irish novel between the close of World War II and the turn of the millennium.

The Companion embraces the full range of this rich and heterogeneous subject, covering: specifice British and Irish novels and novelists ranging from Samuel Beckett to Salman Rushdie; particular subgenres such as the feminist novel and the postcolonial novel; overarching cultural, political, and literary trends such as screen adaptations and the literary prize phenomenon. All the essays are informed by current critical and theoretical debates, but are designed to be accessible to non-specialists.

The volume as a whole gives readers a sense of the vitality with which the contemporary novel continues to be discussed.
