This is the ideal guide for those studying contemporary fiction for the first time. The last twenty-five years have seen an extraordinary renaissance in contemporary fiction in the English language. An excellent introduction to the diverse field of contemporary fiction studies can appear complex and confusing. Jago Morrison's Contemporary Fiction provides a much-needed accessible introduction to the field. He enables readers to navigate the subject by introducing the key areas of debate and offers in-depth discussions of the most significant texts by nine contemporary fiction writers: including; Ian McEwan, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, and Hanif Kureishi.
