Background

I specialize in 20th- and 21st-century British literature. My research and teaching interests include British and American literature since 1945, modern British literature, the history of the novel, contemporary fiction, modern drama, and postcolonial studies. 

My current book project explores the role of the artist manqué in the development of postwar British fiction.
