This book contains nine chapters on modern British fiction of the 1960s. Literature scholars from the UK and US review key writers, themes, issues, and debates during the period, then discuss the housewife and the single girl as archetypes in satirical novels of the 1960s, British women's fiction of the decade, gay fiction and cultural attitudes of the 1960s, black authors, the existential fiction of John Fowles, experimental British fiction, British science fiction, and the fiction of J. G. Ballard and Michael Moorcock. Chapters are based on a workshop held in March 2015 in London, UK. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
