      Summary: This introduction to and analysis of women's writing in contemporary France includes both new writers of the 1990s and their more established counterparts. It situates these authors and their texts at the centre of the trends and issues concerning modern French literary production, whilst 15 original essays focus on individual writers. The text also discusses authors published in the 1980s who gained mainstream status with new publications in the 1990s, such as Paule Constant, Sylvie Germain, Marie Redonnet and Leila Sebbar, and looks at up-and-coming authors, including Christine Angot, Marie Darrieussecq and Regine Detambel. There are specialist biographies on each writer, English translations, major interviews, quotations and key critical studies.
