10 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This guide includes new critical perspectives on J.G. Ballard's major novels as well as his short stories and journalistic writing covering issues of form, narrative and experimentation. Whilst offering fresh readings of dominant and recurring themes in Ballard's writing, including history, sexuality, violence, consumer capitalism, and urban space, the contributors also explore Ballard's contribution to major contemporary debates including those surrounding post 9/11 politics, terrorism, neo-imperialism, science, morality and ethics."--Jacket
J.G. Ballard's surrealist imagination : spectacular authorship by Jeannette Baxter( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suggesting that J.G. Ballard's fiction must be read within the framework of surrealism, the author argues for a radical revisioning of Ballard that takes account of the political and ethical dimensions of his work. A different portrait then emerges, one with implications for our understanding of post-war history and culture

Andrea Levy by Jeannette Baxter( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrea Levy has emerged as one of the most significant and popular voices in contemporary black British writing both in the UK and abroad. Drawing on a familial history of emigration, her critically-acclaimed novels - including the multiple award-winning Small Island - attempt to bring a variety of voices to the representation of black experience in post-war Britain. This book is the first of its kind to be devoted to Levy's work. Combining historical, theoretical and textual perspectives, the volume hosts a wide range of current critical approaches to Levy's fiction. With chapters written by leading established and emerging scholars, the book explores issues of literary form, diasporic literature and cultural value, the BBC TV adaptation of Small Island, while also shedding fresh light on Levy's critically neglected early works. The book also includes a new interview with Levy herself, a timeline of her life, chapter summaries, as well as guides to further reading and online resources, making this an essential companion to the writings of one of the most exciting voices in contemporary fiction

'This volume makes a brilliant contribution to our understanding of the sheer range, originality and uniqueness of Ballard's talents. In doing so, it also opens up a fascinating range of hitherto underexplored intellectual and cultural contexts of the period 1960 to the present. This is a collection of the highest distinction.' - Professor Patricia Waugh, Department of English Studies, University of Durham, UK
