The Commonwealth Novel since 1960 is the first survey of the new English literatures for over a decade. There are essays, by an international body of writers and critics. There are also comparative essays on indigenous novelists, post modernism, feminist novelists, the novel as national epic and regionalism in the post modern era. Bruce King's introduction discusses changes in the Commonwealth novel and its contexts over recent decades and the causes for the new popularity of post-colonial literature among readers and critics.
