This chapter examines Kate Atkinson’s play, Abandonment (2000) and her collection of stories, Not the End of the World (2002). It reads Abandonment as a neo-Victorian play that entwines two temporalities and social worlds and analyses the expansive nature of Not the End of the World. Both texts are shown to confirm Atkinson’s predilection for female characters and gender issues, the complexity of representations of the past and a hybrid form of realism, for instance, with the inclusion of a ghost in her play and Greek gods in her stories.
