Elaine Savory's study is a critical reading of Rhys' entire oeuvre, including the stories and autobiography, and is informed by recently released unpublished manuscripts by Rhys. Designed both for the serious scholar and those unfamiliar with Rhys' writing, Savory's book insists on the importance of a Caribbean-centered approach to Rhys, and shows how this context profoundly affects her literary style. Informed by contemporary arguments on race, gender, class and nationality, this study offers a comprehensive account of the life and work of this most complex and enigmatic of writers.
