About this book

This collection examines the dynamic experimentation of contemporary women writers from North America, Australia, and the UK. Blurring the dichotomies of the popular and the literary, the fictional and the factual, the essays assembled here offer new approaches to reading contemporary women fiction writers' reconfigurations of history.

Reviews

'This important collection of essays catches a current literary (and literary critical) moment, engaging directly with the steady and seemingly continuing interest in the past shown by contemporary women writers of fiction. In particular, it offers the contemporary literary critic a series of authoritative guides on how to straddle historical periods whilst remaining firmly rooted in the twenty-first century - this is a much needed volume.' - Lucie Armitt, Professor of Literary and Cultural Studies, University of Salford, UK

'The chapters are wide-ranging in their thematic and historical scope, traversing various centuries, genres, and critical frameworks... this volume makes a timely contribution to a current and dynamic field of enquiry.' - Rebecca Munford, Contemporary Women's Writing
