Product description


'… a compelling reading of 21st-century novels … this is a refreshingly current and theoretically nuanced study. Boxall makes a persuasive and always readable case for contemporary fiction in relation to its social, cultural, and political contexts … Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.' J. Young, Choice

'… a timely and highly welcome contribution to this slowly emerging field of twenty-first-century studies.' Anglistik: International Journal of English Studies

'In Twenty-First-Century Fiction … Boxall traverses a vast terrain, offering compelling close readings of more than a dozen novelists and connecting them with dozens more from around the world. His prose is lush and lyrical, his readings subtle and intellectually demanding. Sentence by sentence, both books are pleasure-reads for anyone who cares deeply about literary criticism.' Andrew Lanham, Notes and Queries

Book Description

This is the first full-length study of the twenty-first-century novel. It examines writers from around the world and identifies the formal and thematic features that their novels share, suggesting the outlines of a new phase in the genre's history.
