Author: Emma Young Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/02/2018

New reading of contemporary feminisms and the short storyThe short story has received renewed attention and notable popular acclaim in the twenty-first century. This book offers a wide-ranging survey of contemporary women's short stories and introduces a new way of theorising feminism in the genre through the concept of 'the moment'. By considering the prominent themes of motherhood, marriage, domesticity, sexuality, masculinity and femininity, this work engages with a spectrum of issues that are central to feminism today and, in the process, offers insightful new readings of the contemporary short story.

Byatt, Aminatta Forna, Victoria Hislop, Jackie Kay, Andrea Levy, Hilary Mantel, Kate Mosse, Michele Roberts, Ali Smith, Zadie Smith and Rose Tremain.

British Women Short Story Writers The New Woman to Now

Author: Emma Young Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/03/2017

What is the relationship between the British woman writer and the short story? This collection examines what this versatile genre offers women writers and what this can tell us about the society and culture they inhabit. From the rise of the modern printing press at the end of the 19th century through to the present digital age, these essays examine how the short story has been deployed and reworked by women writers and how they have influenced and shaped the genre's development. Considering the effect of literary inheritances, societal and cultural change and shifting publishing demands, this collection traces the evolution of the genre through to its continued appeal to women writing today. From the New Woman to contemporary feminisms, women's anthologies to microfiction, modernist writers to the contemporary works of Ali Smith and Helen Simpson, the chapters in this collection investigate a crucial yet underexamined field of British literature.
