About this book


In this work, Alan McCluskey explores materialism, in its many conceptual forms, in the contemporary cosmopolitan novel. The author applies a 'cosmopolitan materialist' lens to the novels of Caryl Phillips, J. M. Coetzee, and Philip Roth: three contemporary authors who hail from different parts of the world and produce highly dissimilar novels.
