9780813014098: The Contemporary Novel in France

"A truly 'contemporary' study . . . remarkably up-to-date. . . . Each of the individual articles represents a genuine contribution to knowledge."--Charles A. Porter, Yale University "Invaluable to readers wishing to familiarize themselves with the wide array of novels that have been published in France since the advent of the New Novel in the 1950s.  For Anglo-American readers who may not have easy access to events on the contemporary French literary scene, this work will be especially useful and instructive."--Leah D. Hewitt, Amherst College These essays provide an overview of the novel form in contemporary France through analyses of the works of novelists who have been at the forefront of French letters since 1960.  Written by twentieth-century French literature specialists, the essays focus on individual authors who for the most part continue to contribute to French letters and whose place in the French literary scene is firmly established.   Contents
