Reviews

“Emilie Walezak concentrates on compiling a comprehensive and detailed introduction on the works of Rose Tremain, an English novelist, short story writer, and former Chancellor of the University of East Anglia. … Walezak aims to situate Tremain in the genre of contemporary British literature by providing proof of the variety of Tremain’s work, and how that variety touches upon many major concerns of contemporary fiction.” (Katy Johnson, CBQ Communication Booknotes Quarterly, Vol. 49 (4), 2018)
“It will be the first monograph on Rose Tremain and it provides the extensive, detailed over-view and analysis of Tremain’s work that has, hitherto, been lacking. It will be the point of reference for future studies for a good time to come.” (Mary Eagleton, formerly Professor of Contemporary Women's Writing, Leeds Beckett University, UK)
