Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312228686, Hardcover)
This book offers the first major critical study in English of one of Britain's most inventive and significant writers of the twentieth century. This study rigorously engages with those aspects of literary stylistics and personal and national identity so important in Ackroyd's work. Rejecting the postmodern label previously attached to the author, Jeremy Gibson and Julian Wolfreys provide a consideration of all Ackroyd's writing to date, from his poetry and critical thought, to his novels and biographies, offering an indispensable account to anyone interested in Ackroyd and the condition of the novel at the end of the twentieth century.
