Editor. This is a 150,000-word volume of commissioned research essays exploring the tensions, fractures, continuities and reconfigurations of an often overlooked period of British literary studies. The book will be volume 3 in a 5-volume series, British Literature in Transition 1900-2000, of which I am also General Editor.
My contribution to this volume is 17,000 words of introductory material (13,000 word main Introduction plus 4 section introductions) and a 7,000 word chapter, 'Heroes of Austerity'.
