In this work, Alan McCluskey explores materialism, in its many conceptual forms, in the contemporary cosmopolitan novel. The author applies a 'cosmopolitan materialist' lens to the novels of Caryl Phillips, J. M. Coetzee, and Philip Roth: three contemporary authors who hail from different parts of the world and produce highly dissimilar novels.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"There are relatively few books that specifically address the contemporary cosmopolitan novel as a genre. Materialism and the Modern Cosmopolitan Novel is a useful contribution to this growing scholarly conversation about the connection between contemporary genre practices and cosmopolitanism. The book brings together an interesting mix of authors that aren't often considered together, providing a compelling way of thinking about the overlapping concerns with which these texts engage. ' Emily Johansen, Texas A&M University, USA

"In this work, Alan McCluskey offers subtle and original readings of three major contemporary novelists: Philip Roth, Caryl Phillips, and J. M. Coetzee. McCluskey's case studies build into an important intervention in the complex field of cosmopolitanism. Materialism and the Modern Cosmopolitan Novel is an impressive study which will be of relevance to scholars of contemporary literature and cosmopolitan theory alike." Dominic Head, University of Nottingham, UK
