A Concise Companion to Contemporary British Fiction offers an authoritative overview of contemporary British fiction in its social, political, and economic contexts.

  • Focuses on the fiction that has emerged since the late 1970s, roughly since the start of the Thatcher era.

  • Comprises original essays from major scholars.

  • Topics range from the rise and fall of the postcolonial novel to controversies over the celebrity author.

  • The emphasis is on the whole fiction scene, from bookstores and prizes to the changing economics of film adaptation.

  • Enables students to read contemporary works of British fiction with a much clearer sense of where they fit within British cultural life.
