This eloquent introduction to postmodernism explores how post-war British fiction reinvents and re-evaluates the literary conventions of Realism. By focusing on the modes postmodern Bristish novelists approach the relations between past and present, the elusiveness of history, and the distortions of memory, the author shows how Realism is extended to portray multiple realities.
