British Avant-Garde Fiction of the 1960s

Edited by Kaye Mitchell and Nonia Williams

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Provides much-needed critical analyses of the work of 60s avant-garde writers
  • Offers focused essays - each presents one author in their cultural/critical/historical contexts - by experts in the field
  • Recuperates a lost decade in British literature and thus fills a vital gap in literary history, between late modernism and early postmodernism
  • Responds to burgeoning critical and popular interest in authors such as Christine Brooke-Rose, Ann Quin, and B.S. Johnson, and to a widespread interest in experimental and innovative writing more generally
