Feminist fabulation: space/postmodern fiction

Front Cover
University of Iowa Press, Nov 1, 1992 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 312 pages
The surprising and controversial thesis of Feminist Fabulation is unflinching: the postmodern canon has systematically excluded a wide range of important women's writing by dismissing it as genre fiction.  Marleen Barr issues an urgent call for a corrective, for the recognition of a new meta- or supergenre of contemporary writing--feminist fabulation--which includes both acclaimed mainstream works and works which today's critics consistently ignore.
