Books Info:

Metafiction and Metahistory in Contemporary Women's Writing free pdf In recent years, historical fiction, particularly that by women authors, has been at the cutting edge of postmodern reconceptualizations of the past and of contemporary worlds. This collection examines the dynamic experimentation of contemporary women writers from North America, Australia, and the UK. Blurring the dichotomies of the popular and the literary, the fictional and the factual, and covering those narratives that defy categorization, the essays assembled here offer new approaches to reading contemporary women fiction writers' reconfigurations of history.
