Book Description Northcote House Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Graham Swift is among the foremost contemporary British writers, having published seven highly acclaimed novels which are widely read by students and general public alike. Waterland has become a modern classic and Last Orders won the Booker Prize in 1996. This study covers all of his novels to date (including his latest, The Light of Day) and is the first critical monograph on him to appear so far. It offers a close reading of each novel, exploring their innovative formal strategies and identifying such recurrent themes as the presence of the past in the present, the blurring of distinctions between history and story , fact and fiction, and the possibilities of redemption in a contemporary social and emotional wasteland. For the most part set in an urban, middle class, claustrophobic and loveless present , and focused on usually fraught relationships, these recognisably postmodern novels are seen here as symptomatic of contemporary Britain: Seller Inventory # AAN9780746310120
