This is part of a series of books which review specific novelists and their work. The main aim of this series is to look at the adaptability and growth of the novel in its various contexts. Each book provides an introduction to the fiction of the writer concerned, both for those who are approaching the work for the first time and for those who are familiar with some parts of the writer's achievement. Although essential information on the writer's life and times is given, usually in an opening chapter, the approach is primarily critical and the emphasis is not on background or generalizations but upon close examination of important texts. Where an author is prolific, texts have been made to convey a sense of the author's work as a whole.
