My 1991 book The Fictions of John Fowles: Power, Creativity, Femininity develops a feminist-oriented reading of gender politics and artistic creativity in Fowles's work. My work-in-progress includes a book on postcolonial fiction which applies aspects of poststructuralist theory to representations of the body in literary texts. Essays on contemporary fiction -- by Margaret Atwood, Sylvia Plath, Graham Swift, and Jeanette Winterson -- have appeared in Women's Studies, Journal of Popular Culture, and Modern Fiction Studies.
