This is a paperbound reprint of a 2006 book. Decade by decade, Philips (U. of Brighton, UK) examines novels written either by or for women from the end of World War II onward. Starting with the post-war masculinity that dominated women's fiction in the 1950s, the author charts the changes and trends over the next 60 years, making distinctions between "literary" fiction and its more popular counterparts. Philips eventually challenges those distinctions, blurring the lines as gender expectations evolved throughout the Feminist Era. This latest entry in the Continuum Literary Studies series should interest students of both literature and Women's Studies.
