Reading behind the lines

Natasha Alden

Manchester University Press

Explores the extension of postmemory from a generational model to one which might work across communities rather than families. Analysis of the relation of Sarah Waters’ novel ‘The Night Watch’ situates it in its literary and historical context as a 21st century queer novel, and one which explores queer ideas of belonging and of life-writing to give voice to a lost past.

Keywords:   Sarah Waters, Lesbian fiction, Queer life-writing, Postmemory
