Marketing Literature published

Claire Squires, Senior Lecturer in the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, has published a new book.

Marketing Literature: The Making of Contemporary Writing in Britain is a study of the publishing of contemporary writing in Britain. It analyses the changing social, economic and cultural environment of the publishing industry in the 1990s-2000s, and investigates its impact on genre, format, packaging, authorship and reading. It includes case studies of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting, Louis de Bernières's Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things and David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas, and significantly extends our understanding of the circulation of literary fiction in a period of notable change.
