Summary
Contemporary British Women Writers is a collection of ten essays, each devoted to an important novelist and written by a distinguished scholar. Included in this volume are Sybille Bedford, Anita Brookner, A.S. Byatt, Angela Carter, Isabel Colegate, Penelope Fitzgerald, Susan Hill, Molly Keane, Muriel Spark, and Fay Weldon. Each essay focuses on several novels, selected to reveal the novelist's consistent concerns and characteristic strategies. Individual bibliographies provide a full sense of the novelist's work as well as a discriminating guide to the best critical work available. Contemporary British Women Writers brings many of these writers to the attention of a greater audience for the first time, offering a solid introduction to some of the most exciting contemporary fiction in English. Subsequent volumes will include writers like Beryl Bainbridge, Alice Thomas Ellis, Rosamond Lehmann, Doris Lessing, Penelope Lively, Iris Murdoch, Jean Rhys and Edith Templeton
