Women's Writing in Twenty-First-Century France is a collection of critical essays on recent women-authored literature in France. It takes stock of the themes, issues and trends in women's writing of the first decade of the twenty-first century, and it engages critically with the work of individual authors through close textual readings. Authors covered include major prize-winners, best-selling, established names from the so-called 'new generation' of young French writers of the 1990s, such as Christine Angot, Nina Bouraoui, Marie Darrieussecq, Virginie Despentes, Ananda Devi, Marie NDiaye and Amelie Nothomb, as well as exciting new authors, worthy of further critical attention, such as Chloe Delaume, Claudie Gallay, Anna Gavalda, Veronique Olmi and Laurence Tardieu. Themes include translation, popular fiction, society, history, war, family relations, violence, trauma, the body, racial identity, sexual identity, feminism, life-writing and textual/aesthetic experiments.
