Staff Publication: Ruth Rendell Special Journal Issue

A special issue of Contemporary Women’s Writing Journal on Ruth Rendell, edited by Ruth Heholt with Dr Fiona Peters (Bath Spa) and Professor Gina Wisker (Brighton), has just been published by Oxford University Press.

Rendell is an important and serious writer and radical author who has too often been overlooked.

Ruth Rendell who died in 2015 was a world-wide best-selling author. However, there is little academic work about her. This special issue highlights her importance and influence on crime writing today.
