Additional Information: In this chapter, Scanlon focuses on two novels that blur postmodernist techniques with their own brands of literary realism and humanism. The novels are 'Life Size' (1993) by the South African born, U.S. based author Jenefer Shute, and Paradise (2005) by the Scottish author, A.L. Kennedy. These works take as their subject matter explicitly "unruly selves": their female first person narrators are characters that suffer from anorexia and alcoholism, respectively.
Uncontrolled Keywords: Postmodernism (Literature), Fiction--History and criticism.
