This supplement features 18 essays on writers including Caroline Blackwood, Bruce Chatwin, Alasdair Gray, Dermot Healy, Patrick McCabe, Mary Renault, Ruth Rendell, Denton Welch and others.
"Essays collected here focus on 18 British writers, mostly contemporary. Essays are designed to interest readers unfamiliar with the writers' work and to assist those who know their work well by providing close readings of individual texts and a sense of the biographical, cultural, and critical context of the writers' work. The 18 authors, including Caroline Blackwood, Bruce Chatwin, and Brian Moore, have been neglected by critics, although most are well-known. Contributors are teachers, scholars, and writers who have published in their fields, and several are well-known writers of poetry and fiction as well as critics."
