What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“It will be the first monograph on Rose Tremain and it provides the extensive, detailed over-view and analysis of Tremain’s work that has, hitherto, been lacking. It will be the point of reference for future studies for a good time to come.” (Mary Eagleton, formerly Professor of Contemporary Women's Writing, Leeds Beckett University, UK)
