More about Sue
Sue has been working on the drama scripts of the television playwright Jack Rosenthal, whose papers are held in Special Collections at the University Library, and her monograph on his work was published in 2009. Sue’s next project will focus on false memory and deception in literary texts, including false memoirs (such as Binjamin Wilkomirski’s Fragments and James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces) as well as fictional works representing fakery (Peter Carey’s My Life as a Fake and Nella Larsen’s Passing).
She is influenced by the work of Mikhail Bakhtin and my research background is in the work of Malcolm Lowry. This interest has continued in her recent work and teaching, including the publication Malcolm Lowry Eighty Years On (1989).
Sue’s publications in the field of literary theory include Psychoanalytic Criticism: A Reader (1996) and Introducing Bakhtin (1997).
Being interested in representations of the Holocaust for many years, she has published a book on novels about the Holocaust, Holocaust Fiction (2000), and one on children’s perspectives, Children Writing the Holocaust (2004).
