Reviews

'Transforming Memories in Contemporary Women's Rewriting is a sophisticated study of the role of rewriting within contemporary feminist literature. With a tone that is often philosophical and yet carries a sound attentiveness to the particularities of individual works, this book provides a strong and individual contribution to make to the field. The discussion of the commoditisation of women's rewriting in the marketplace and the inherent conservatism of publishers and purchasers is handled with care and precision. This book is certain to have relevance to both researchers and students working on contemporary women's writing and twenty-first century writing more generally.'

- Dr Mark Llewellyn, University of Liverpool, UK; Consultant Editor to Neo-Victorian Studies and co-author (with Ann Heilmann) of Neo-Victorianism: The Victorians in the Twenty-first Century, 1999-2009 (2010).
