Overview

Holocaut Fiction examines the controversies accompanying the publication of novels that represent the Holocaust. Sue Vice examines the most debatable of this genre of literature, the violently mixed receptions of these fictions, and offers what can concluded from their receptions about the ethics and practice of millennial Holocaust literature. Although several of the novels discussed won literary prizes on publication, they were also deplored and criticized.

The Novels examined, including some for the first time are:

Time's Arrow by Martin Amis

The White Hotel by D.M. Thomas

The Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinsky

Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally

Sophie's Choice by William Styron

The Hand That Signed the Paper by Helen Darville

In this gripping and compelling book, Vice surveys the fictional, critical and theoretical territory of these novels, and brings a new slant to the key debates and issues relevant to those looking at representations of the Holocaust.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Now we may well wish that extracts from these diaries should appear in the National Curriculum - certainly there is nothing in the realm of home-grown 'Holocaust fiction' that comes anywhere near them for detailed fascination and capacity for enlightenment.' - Piotr Kuhiwczak, The Cambridge Quarterly, Vol. 30 (2) 2001
