We are delighted to report a new publication co-edited by Salford’s Glyn White and Philip Tew (Brunel). The latest volume in Bloomsbury’s Decades series, The 1940s: A Decade of Modern British Fiction, asks the question: how did social, cultural and political events concerning Britain during the 1940s reshape modern British fiction?
Several years in the making, and complete with a closing chapter authored by Glyn, alongside the co-written introduction, the volume offers substantial chapters on Elizabeth Bowen, Graham Greene, and George Orwell as well as covering such writers as Jocelyn Brooke, Monica Dickens, James Hadley Chase, Patrick Hamilton, Gerald Kersh, Daphne Du Maurier, Mary Renault, Denton Welch and many others.
To find out more about the book, and to order, see the Bloomsbury website here.
Congratulations to Glyn and Philip on this important contribution!
