in Kate Atkinson
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter first considers the literary and theoretical background to Atkinson’s work that encompasses postmodernism and its aftermath. It then points to some idiosyncratic elements of her aesthetics: the combination of tradition and innovation particularly noticeable in her alliance of flowing narratives and fragmentation, the use of humour, the concern for history and memory and the feminist dimension of her work.
