About the Author:

JANE ELLIOTT is Lecturer of English at University of York, UK.

Review:

"By charting the modes of temporality structuring post-1960s women's popular fiction, Elliott offers an illuminating way of articulating the narratives of second-wave feminism to evolving conceptions of capitalist America. Her argument that these narratives are, first and foremost, national allegories gives them a refreshing intelligibility and historical agency. It's the kind of argument with which, whether or not they agree with her, future generations of scholars will need to reckon." - Rey Chow, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of the Humanities, Brown University and author of Sentimental Fabulations, Contemporary Chinese Films

"In this impressive debut, Jane Elliott revisits a fascinating passage in recent American culture, when feminism could advance through popular fiction and critical theory alike. She examines a series of novels both famous and forgotten, unfolding their allegorical layers to show how they speak directly to the changing contours of domination and liberation in women s lives. The book offers timely lessons, not only about the renewable resources of popular cultural forms, but also about the value of allegorical reading for contemporary critical practice." - Richard Dienst, Department of English, Rutgers University
