Sexuality and Contemporary Literature

by Joel Gwynne and Angelia Poon


“This is a nuanced and fascinating account of the many ways in which contemporary fiction 'troubles' and transforms our thinking about sexuality. The introduction provides a lucid, compelling account of the impact of feminist, queer and postcolonial critical interventions in studies on sexuality, and the essays cover a wide range of writing, from Sarah Waters to contemporary gay male fiction in New Zealand. Sexuality and Contemporary Literature undoubtedly proves the continued importance and vitality of written, as opposed to visual cultures, for our contemporary understanding of sexuality”. – Susan Watkins, Reader in Twentieth-Century Fiction, Leeds Metropolitan University

“Adds a new perspective to the current trend of examining sexuality in literature. An admirable collection.” – Contemporary Women’s Writing
