Pressestimmen

"The series comes as near to squaring various circles - popular / academic, 'good read' / 'classic Lit', novel / film of the book as any I know. And at best it goes a fair way towards reshuffling those categories and redrawing the boundaries. With the first volume, I was relieved. After two or three, I was hooked. The books are invaluable for gathering out-of-the-way or ephemeral comment from TV and radio interviews and the web as well as from literary reviews. Refreshingly upfront and up-to-date Given the space, there are remarkably balanced film/novel comparisons of the most well-known examples An important feature is the fully referenced bibliographies, including reviews and copious website addresses - the latter ranging from fanzines and authors' and publishers' own sites to academic discussion lists and online journals. In method as in subject matter, these guides move freely on the interface between print culture and multimedia. Highly finished and pleasantly handleable as books in their own right, they gesture accommodatingly to both words and worlds beyond. Taking the series as a whole, it also confirms two things: that narrative nowadays is generically highly hybrid and increasingly cross-media; and that an understanding of the processes of writing and reading 'contemporary classic' (or at least 'currently famous') fiction cannot be separated - yet must be distinguished - from the processes of making and marketing books and films." The Times Higher Education Supplement, May 31, 2002

Synopsis

The "Continuum Contemporaries" series is designed to be a source of ideas and inspiration for members of book clubs and reading groups, as well as for literature students at school, college and university. The series aims to give readers accessible and informative introductions to 30 of the most popular, most acclaimed and most influential novels of recent years. A team of contemporary fiction scholars from both sides of the Atlantic has been assembled to provide a thorough and readable analysis of each of the novels in question. The books in the series all follow the same structure, which features: a biography of the novelist, including other works, influences and, in some cases, an interview; a full-length study of the novel, drawing out the important themes and ideas; summaries of how the novel was received upon publication and how it has performed since publication, including film or TV adaptations and literary prizes; a wide range of suggestions for further reading, including websites; and a list of questions for reading groups or students to discuss.

She's a genius! 27. Juni 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Kate Atkinson is a genius, and this is a great little book all about her first novel. According to the book, Kate thinks that her second novel Human Croquet is better, but I disagree. Behind the Scenes at the Museum is just amazing. In the first chapter of this, she comes across as slightly mad - which she may well be. When a British newspaper asks her for her favourite ten books, for example, she manages to squeeze in thirteen. (But it's a great list anyway!) The book talks about her obsession with dogs and with Lewis Carroll, and gets very in-depth about Behind the Scenes at the Museum, which I thought was fascinating. And you would not believe the patronising nonsense that some male reviewers and judges came out with about the novel. Just unbelievable.
Anyway, if you haven't read anything by Kate Atkinson then you're really missing out. If you have, and you loved it, then read this book as well. It tells you so many things about a brilliant writer.
