Has British literature finally surpassed Postmodernism and are we thus
currently witnessing the emergence of a new era? Choosing specific forms of
engagement with difference as a starting point, the present study traces
recent developments in the field of the novel and illustrates
in how far these new ways of dealing with difference may be characterised
as „non-postmodern“. Moreover, the analysis aims to demonstrate the renewed
importance of modern(ist) strategies and their employment in contemporary
British fiction. Case studies of six novels complement and illuminate
these findings.

„Nunius‘ Coping with Difference is a study that can definitely be
recommended to
anyone interested in the development of the British novel in recent years.“
