The only college-level survey of the twentieth-century novel, this very brief and inexpensive guide presents key historical background for, issues concerning, and critical approaches to the modern, post-modern, and contemporary novel.
As a professor of literature, I love this little book. I've been teaching the 20th-century novel for a few years, and I've never come across something that so clearly makes the connections for both myself and my students. This amazingly compact work is comprehensive and horribly philosophical, and yet it presents the connections in a very approachable way: I would highly recommend it for both teachers and students. (Indispensible for graduate studies in English.)
