' Women in the House of Fiction will become essential reading for anyone - teacher or student - interested in post-war women's writing'. - I.Armstrong, Times Literary Supplement '...a subtle and engaging book ...One of the pleasures of this book is the imaginative insight - and wit - with which Sage unravels the very different strategies of her twenty two chosen novelists'. - H.Carr, Observer The novel was once upon a time the genre women felt at home in. This wide- ranging and detailed study of contemporary novelists explores the forms of nostalgia (shared by many feminist critics) for a 'woman's novel'; and the subtle or savage strategies which have turned the house of fiction upside down. The result is a critique of the nature of narrative now; and a celebration of the energies that are undoing our definitions of women's work.
