Pre- and Post-Publication Itineraries of the Contemporary Novel in English by Vanessa Guignery and François Gallix


The articles in this volume follow the itineraries or trajectories of the contemporary novel in English, looking thoroughly into the study of the creation of a book, and more particularly the various steps of its elaboration, from the writing process with its succession of drafts and rewritings, the making-of, the conception of the book itself, the relationship with publishers and agents, to the final exploitation by mass-media, the reading of the book, the phenomenon of literary awards, translations, film and television adaptations. The novels analysed range from the early twentieth century to early twenty-first century, and belong to both British and post-colonial or new literatures from South-Africa, Canada and India. The volume includes lectures by and debates with British writer David Lodge and South African author André Brink
