The Novel Now is an intelligent and engaging survey of contemporary British fiction. * Discusses familiar names such as Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie, and Angela Carter and compares them with more recent authors, including David Mitchell, Ali Smith, A.L. Kennedy, Matt Thorne, Nicola Barker, and Toby Litt * Incorporates original coverage of subgenres such as chick lit, lad lit, gay fiction, crime fiction, and the historical novel * Discusses the ways in which notions of regional identity and tribalist views have surfaced in UK and Irish fiction, and how post-Imperial sensibility has become a feature of the 'British' novel * Situates contemporary fiction within its socio-cultural and literary contexts.
