Women's fiction, poetry, drama and non-fiction represent the complex nexus of continuity and change in the British consciousness following the Second World War. These essays restore the cultural and literary significance of women as readers and writers, examining their various transmutations of international, national and domestic politics. The women-centred writing illuminated in this collection also enhances the tradition-in-process of twentieth-century women's literature. Writers discussed include Iris Murdoch, Doris Lessing, Muriel Spark, Agatha Christie and Stevie Smith.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This rich and lively collection adds new layers to our knowledge of twentieth-century writing by women. Exploring the worlds 'behind and beyond the fishnet curtains' of Britain in the 1940s and 50s, the essays remind us of the wealth of literary culture in the period, illuminating the contradictory desires and dreams of women writers in the aftermath of war, their sexual and spiritual longings, the appetite for wild fantasy and for closely scrutinising the everyday, the capacity for nostalgic retreat and for radical visions of the future. ' - Alison Light, Lecturer in English, University College London
