Product Description

Contemporary Fiction: The Novel since 1990

Author/s: Pamela Bickley

Following a period when the decline of the novel was widely discussed, fiction has emerged as a vibrant and innovative genre, exploring the diversity of the contemporary world and, frequently, experimenting with form and language.

Contemporary Fiction introduces students to the major and recurrent preoccupations of the post-1990 novel; it identifies some of the chief characteristics of the genre, and offers ways in which contemporary writing can be analysed and discussed.

Texts are placed in their cultural contexts and are often discussed in the light of related works.


  • Opportunities to explore and evaluate different interpretations in literature.
  • Provides the background for placing texts within their literary, cultural and historical contexts.
  • A variety of approaches to active, imaginative and comparative study of texts and contexts.
  • Ideas on how to write about the authors and their work in context.
  • Assignments and key focus questions.
  • Further reading lists, chronologies and glossaries of critical terms.
