Summary
"Despite the enduring popularity of contemporary women's writing, British women writers have received scant critical attention. They tend to be overshadowed by their American counterparts in the media and have come to be represented within the academy almost exclusively by Angela Carter and Jeanette Winterson." "This collection celebrates the range and diversity of contemporary (post-1970) British women writers. It challenges misconceptions about the nature and scope of fiction by women writers working in Britain - commonly dismissed as parochial, insular, dreary and domestic - and seeks to expand conventional definitions of 'British' by exploring how issues of nationality intersect with gender, class, race and sexuality."--BOOK JACKET
