    This book addresses the 'autobiographical' literature, visual, and performance art of postcolonial women from Maghreb and Southeast Asia including Leila Sebbar, Assia Djebar, and Theresa Hak Kyung Cha.

  • Diasporic Women’s Writing of the Black Atlanticby Emilia María Durán-Almarza; Esther Álvarez López

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This book brings together a complete set of approaches to works by female authors that articulate the black Atlantic in relation to the interplay of race, class, and gender. The chapters provide the grounds to (en)gender a more complex understanding of the scattered geographies of the African diaspora in the Atlantic basin. The variety of approaches... more...

  • Chick Lit and Postfeminismby Stephanie Harzewski

    University of Virginia Press 2011; US$ 21.50

    Originally a euphemism for Princeton University’s Female Literary Tradition course in the 1980s, "chick lit" mutated from a movement in American women’s avant-garde fiction in the 1990s to become, by the turn of the century, a humorous subset of women’s literature, journalism, and advice manuals. Stephanie Harzewski examines such best ... more...

  • Mothers and Other Clowns (Routledge Revivals)by Magdalene Redekop

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    First published in 1992, this is the first study of the work of Alice Munro to focus on her obsession with mothering, and to relate it to the hallucinatory quality of her magic realism. A bizarre collection of clowning mothers parade across the pages of Munro’s fiction, playing practical jokes, performing stunts, and dressing in disguises that recycle... more...

  • In a Queer Time and Placeby J. Jack Halberstam

    NYU Press 2005; US$ 26.00

    In her first book since the critically acclaimed Female Masculinity , Judith Halberstam examines the significance of the transgender body in a provocative collection of essays on queer time and space. She presents a series of case studies focused on the meanings of masculinity in its dominant and alternative forms’especially female and trans-masculinities... more...

  • The History of Ned Evansby Helena Kelly

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.95

    Ned Evans is a rags-to-riches hero, whose early existence in poverty in Wales is dramatically changed when he saves the beautiful Lady Cecilia Rivers from an assault and is invited to Ireland by her father. After spending time with the great and the good of Irish society, Ned travels to America where his fortunes once more reverse. more...

  • Caroline of Lichtfieldby Laura Kirkley

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.95

    Thomas Holcroft’s 1786 translation of Isabelle de Montolieu’s novel is a textual encounter between a rather conventional Swiss woman and a British radical. Just as Montolieu did in her own translations, Holcroft reworked parts of the novel to make it more appealing to his intended audience. more...

  • The Romance of Private Lifeby Lorna Clark

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.95

    Contains two tales - "The Renunciation", which presents a colourful picture of life abroad, when an English girl travels to Italy in search of kin and supports herself as an artist, offering an early feminist heroine; and, "The Hermitage", a psychological thriller involving a ruined country maiden and an unsolved murder. more...

  • The Victim of Fancyby Daniel Cook

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.95

    The Victim of Fancy was first published in December 1787 and, despite favourable reviews, has not been published since. Cook's new scholarly edition of this forgotten novel will be of paramount importance in allowing new insights into the form of the sentimental novel as it actually existed in the 1780s, and not as it is often perceived. more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.95

    This is the first modern scholarly edition of Florence Macarthy: An Irish Tale (1818). Owenson's seventh novel, it is the most sophisticated of her four 'national tales'. Owenson combined conventional romance plotlines with the political and social problems in Ireland, following the passing of the Act of Union in 1800. more...
