Here, contemporary music is given impossible political mandates to fulfill . It’s telling that MacLaverty uses the word ‘story’ to describe the expectations of Catherine’s music. Himself an Irish novelist working and writing in Glasgow, each new novel carries the weight of critical expectations that he might respond to the political climate of his birthplace. Yet we might ask whether the novel itself is not complicit in this process. Yet one of the novel’s most telling musical allusions comes in Smith’s rewriting of the scene where Helen Schlegel goes to a Beethoven recital, and then accidentally meets Leonard Bast, with whom she will eventually have a child.

The second part riffs on musical and literary subgenres in recent British fiction. Standing for the unwritable and inexpressible, the novelist's references to music nonetheless express emotions beyond the text, increasing the writer's affective power by sleight of hand. Smyth is adventurously inclusive here, dealing with fantasy, science fiction and crime fiction alongside the Bookerocracy, and with folk, rock, jazz, hip hop and dance music alongside the classical repertoire.

Thought written in the 1950’s, Amis’ novel about the anachronistic nature of educational institutions in England speaks to the major social shifts during the era. With poets like Philip Larkin and playwrights like John Osborne bitterly expressing their chagrin for the new post-war era, Lucky Jim i. .

Iris Murdoch – Under the Net (1954). By combining a keen eye for relationships with the emerging existentialist philosophy of post-war France, Under the Net is a novel of ideas that does not languish excessively on dead-end ideas.

Contemporary popular music provides the soundtrack for a host of recent novels, but little critical attention has been paid to the intersection of these important art forms. Write in Tune addresses this gap by offering the first full-length study of the relationship between recent music and fiction. With essays from an array of international scholars, the collection focuses on how writers weave rock, punk, and jazz into their narratives, both to develop characters and themes and to investigate various fan and celebrity cultures surrounding contemporary music.
