This York Notes Companion to Literature post 1990 examines contemporary writing in English at the turn of the millennium and beyond. Introducing emerging genres such as multicultural and postcolonial writing, contemporary theatre, autobiography and the neo-Victorian novel, the Companion explores works of established writers such as A. S. Byatt, Salman Rushdie, and Carol Ann Duffy alongside the newer voices of Zadie Smith, Alan Hollinghurst and Sarah Waters, offering detailed commentaries on texts and guiding students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of contemporary literature.
