Exploring five key texts from the emerging canon of second generation writing, this exciting new study brings together theories of autobiography, trauma, and fantasy to understand the how traumatic family histories are represented. In doing so, it demonstrates the continuing impact of familial and community Holocaust trauma, and the need for a precise, clearly developed theoretical framework in which to situate these works. This book will appeal to final year undergraduates and postgraduate students, as well as scholars in literary and Holocaust-related fields, and an audience with personal and professional interests in the 'second generation'.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book gives a fully researched analysis of second-generation Holocaust writing. It is particularly original in its focus on psychoanalytic treatments of the children of survivors, and the mixture of primary texts analyzed constitutes a stimulating range, from memoir to fiction. In particular, Louise Kehoe's In This Dark House deserves to be better known, and Grimwood's presentation of it here excellently foregrounds how fascinating and important it is." - Sue Vice, Professor of English Literature, University of Sheffield, UK
