New Series in Literature, Film, and Theory Challenges Critical Frames

Cambria Press announces an exciting series in Literature, Film and Theory. Works in this series will be critically innovative, diverse in subject-matter, and challenging to existing critical frames. Proposals that engender progressive debate in the fields of literary and/or cultural theory are welcome, as are author-specific, or film-maker-specific studies that deal with their subjects in critically original ways. The series does not align itself to any one particular critical or cultural frame; rather it reflects an aspiration to move beyond the limits of singular categories in order to explore how many ways of reading can intersect in fruitful ways. The following is a sample list of authors in whom we are particularly interested although we welcome alternative suggestions:

Martin Amis
Margaret Atwood
John Banville
Sebastian Barry
Italo Calvino
Peter Carey
Caryl Churchill
Don deLillo
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Romesh Gunesekera
Sunetra Gupta
David Hare
Aidan Higgins
Geoffrey Hill
Ted Hughes
Sarah Kane
Milan Kundera
Hanif Kureishi
Tony Kushner
Doris Lessing
Naguib Mahfouz
Derek Mahon
David Malouf
Ian McEwan
Medbh McGuckian
Vladimir Nabokov
Harold Pinter
Salman Rushdie
Tom Stoppard
Jeanette Winterson

The series also hopes to attract critical books on film-makers, particularly those who have perpetually expanded the aesthetic horizons of their medium and who have contributed to an ever-expanding filmic vocabulary. Please submit your proposal for this series.
