This groundbreaking, cross-generic collection is the first to consider the entire breadth of Alan Hollinghurst's Booker Prize-winning writing. Focused through the concept of influence, the volume addresses critical issues surrounding the work of Britain's most important contemporary novelist. It encompasses provocative and timely subjects ranging from gay visual cultures and representations, to Victorian, modernist and contemporary literature, as well as race and empire, theatre and cinema, eros and economics. The book reveals the fascinating intellectual and affective matter that lies beneath the polished control and dazzling style of Hollinghurst's work. Alongside contributions by distinguished British and American critics, the book includes an unpublished interview with Hollinghurst. Alan Hollinghurst: Writing under the influence uses a creative range of critical approaches to provide the most authoritative and innovative account available of Hollinghurst's works.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Alan Hollinghurst is Britain's finest living novelist, and this volume brilliantly demonstrates why. Whether exploring his depictions of contemporary gay culture or teasing out his complex relations with precursors such as Ronald Firbank, E.M. Forster and Henry James, the essays assembled here do rich and rewarding justice to the 'line of beauty' that unfolds in Hollinghurst's wonderfully inventive writing.' Mark Ford, University College London -- .
