In 1914 Henry James wrote an essay about the future of the novel, in which he expressed his concern that contemporary fiction had lost its sense of purpose forever. This book tests the truth of James's prediction, looking at how the novel evolved during the remainder of the 20th century. It provides a framework through which readers of all kinds can understand the changing nature of the modern novel. In a clear and jargon-free style, the author shows how and why modern novelists reacted to modernity's perils and pleasures by striving for new forms of expression. He takes readers through the main strands of 20th-century fiction, including post-imperial and multicultural fiction, the global novel, the digital novel and the post-realist novel. Finally, he looks once more to the future of the novel, claiming that it is as present, purposeful and relevant at the beginning of the 21st century as it was in 1914.
