Tucked away in a remote corner in the basement of a large building, a man from Earth examines traffic patterns. This man’s name is Matt Cotter. He likes to be left alone. He likes his job. And he definitely likes being on his home planet. But Matt Cotter can’t control everything he likes. For instance, maybe a being from another planet (an intelligent one at that (intelligent being not an intelligent planet)) visits Matt at work and invites him to a planet called Drabble. And maybe, just maybe, that being wants Matt Cotter to help him solve a crime that hasn’t happened yet. Why would this being want that? Because Matt Cotter is so good at solving traffic problems by seeing patterns, he must be able to do the same with pre-crime. Can Matt Cotter solve the case? There’s one way to know if he does. Think about it … almost there. Yes! … That’s how to find out! Inspired by such classics as Doctor Who and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Desmond Shepherd delivers a story mixed with science fiction, mystery, and a little—make that a lot—of humor that solidifies him as one of the most mysterious, humorous, and science fictionous writers around.

Award-winning British novelist Margaret Drabble is renowned for her fiction, stories that gave voice to the new woman of the 1960s and continue to illuminate the conflicting roles of women in the twenty-first century. Drabble’s long affiliation with the theatrical world also inspired her to experiment with the dramatic form. She wrote two plays—one for television, Laura (1964), and one for the stage, Bird of Paradise (1969). Fernández’s penetrating new critical edition makes both plays available for the first time, giving Drabble fans a new vantage point from which to understand her work. In Laura and Bird of Paradise, Drabble mines the familiar territory of social class, domestic life, and questions of destiny, which have been the hallmark of her writing. Asin her novels, both plays reveal a deep curiosity about the world and a piercing commentary on the social issues of her time. The volume’s introduction and accompanying critical essays give valuable insight into the plays’ historical and social context, and explore the artistic solutions that an accomplished author of fiction found when writing for the stage. Offering a fascinating complement to Drabble’s prodigious oeuvre, this volume also provides a glimpse into a specific period in English letters, one that shaped an influential generation of writers.

This book examines Margaret Drabble's female Bildungsromane using a Marxist-feminist theoretical model. Thus it historicizes genre - the "Bildungsroman" - and also the specific kinds of journeys upon which the heroine embarks: marriage, housework, community, sorority, literary creativity. Integrating the theoretical work of Marx, Engels, Althusser, Barret, Gilligan, Hartsock and others, Ian Wojcik-Andrews sees these journeys as historically determined yet negotiable points of intersection that mediate between the hegemony of materialist, psychoanalytic, and aesthetic ideologies and the ongoing struggle by women and women writers for human rights.

Contemporary British novelist Margaret Drabble has enjoyed popularity and critical acclaim for more than thirty years. While the author's fatalistic vision has been formerly analyzed by critics of her work, what has not been assessed in previous texts is the way in which her theories of psychological determinism affect her heroines' lives and, in many cases, are compatible with much of Freud and his successors' psychoanalytic thinking. The purpose of The Novels of Margaret Drabble: «this Freudian family nexus» then, is to examine the writer's fatalism by investigating the ways in which her vision resembles the psychoanalytic tradition. Dr. Nicole Bokat's psychobiography focuses on Drabble's fascination with troubling familial relationships. It explores the connections between personal history - including the relevant fact that her older sister is the renowned novelist A.S. Byatt - and literary representation.
