Contemporary Crisis Fictions
This book offers a significant statement about the contemporary British novel in relation to three authors: Graham Swift, Ian McEwan, and Kazuo Ishiguro. All writing at the forefront of a generation, these authors sought to resuscitate the novel's ethico-political credentials, at a time which did not seem conducive to such a project. Emily Horton is a Visiting Lecturer in English Literature at Brunel University, UK. Her research interests include contemporary British and American fiction, specialising in space and place; contemporary genre and popular fiction; trauma fiction; and cosmopolitan fictions. She is currently co-editing a volume with Philip Tew and Leigh Wilson entitled 1980: A Decade in Contemporary Fiction, and another with Monica Germana on Ali Smith.
