About the Author:

Philip Tew is Professor of English (Post-1900 Literature) at Brunel University, UK, Director of Brunel's Centre for Contemporary Writing and Director of the UK Network for Modern Fiction Studies.

Review:

'To set out to write a poetics of the contemporary novel within the edgy category of 'British' is a doubly ambitious project...As well as offering a more integrative view of the the literary phenomenon than most recent companions and readers, it is not uniquely a critical assessment of the writing experience per se, but a forceful attempt at devising adequate tools to capture the new aesthetic of the novel today.' 'The study merits serious attention from scholars of contemporary studies, providing a refreshing blend of creative and critical reading, with its constant capacity for self-renewal.' 'It should be required reading for scholars working in contemporary writing, and it will be excellent supporting material for graduate students.' (Adriana Neagu, The Journal of the English Association)

'Phil Tew is the perfect Virgil to guide readers through the underworld of the contemporary English novel.' - Will Self

'an important contribution to current critical debates on the future of the novel' Professor Patricia Waugh, University of Durham
