Most widely held works by Linden Peach
Toni Morrison by Linden Peach ( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 1,036 libraries worldwide
This succinct, critical introduction to Morrison's work seeks to make her novels more accessible through unravelling notions of self-representation and narrative structure which will be new to readers accustomed to Euro-American literary conventions. Without ghettoising Morrison as a black woman writer, this is the first major study of how the experimental narrative strategies of her fiction are determined by its African-American content. Linden Peach argues that her novels are most usefully approached through an examination of the innovative techniques which they employ and the creative possibilities these offer.

Toni Morrison ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 523 libraries worldwide
"The novels of Toni Morrison, the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, have inspired stimulating and original criticism. This volume embraces modern theoretic approaches without neglecting the more traditional fare of literary scholarship, providing insights into the structure, themes, language and contexts of her novels. Each essay has been carefully selected for its contribution to current debates in African-American literary criticism, including the complex nature of African-American identities and the black nationalist aesthetic. The book will prove invaluable both for new readers and for those familiar with her work."--BOOK JACKET.
Virginia Woolf by Linden Peach ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 471 libraries worldwide
"Virginia Woolf is one of the great innovators of the modernist novel and a seminal figure in feminist writings. In this new book discussing the whole of Woolf's fiction, Linden Peach argues that Woolf was also a more sophisticated political thinker than has been generally recognised, interested in the complex relationship between history, politics, and language. In particular, Peach shows how Woolf's fiction explores the dialogic relationship between past and present and the coded and concealed meanings of public discourse."--BOOK JACKET.

Masquerade, crime and fiction : criminal deceptions by Linden Peach ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 225 libraries worldwide
Focusing upon the surprisingly neglected area of the criminal as a 'performer', Masquerade, Crime and Fiction offers an exciting, new framework within which to read literary and popular fiction about crime and criminality. Through stimulating discussions of a range of criminal types from the Regency 'swellman', the Victorian prostitute and the mid-twentieth-century gangster to the contemporary serial killer, Professor Peach offers new readings of established texts and argues persuasively for the importance of novels that have been previously neglected. In an accessible, lively text, he integrates incisive literary criticism with challenging, innovative arguments about gender, masquerade and culture. The book highlights the importance of masquerade and performance to criminology and revisits cultural assumptions about sexual identity, criminalisation and the body.
