Write The First Customer Review

Reflecting on the literary landscape of our time--from the writings of Roland Barthes to those of Stephen King, from Gabriel Garcia Marquez to Kazuo Ishiguro--Michael Wood explores such issues as the shift of interest from novel to story, the blurring of the line between fiction and criticism, the persistence of the notion of paradise, the lure of horror, and the tendency of fiction to simultaneously reflect and resist contemporary history.
