Contemporary Women’s Writing Journal

Contemporary Women’s Writing is a widely-acclaimed triannual academic journal, affiliated to the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association, which critically assesses writing by women authors who have published from approximately 1970 to the present. The journal is published by Oxford University Press.

Contemporary Women’s Writing on Gen Jones:
Contemporary Women’s Writing published a long academic essay in November 2021 titled: “Generation Jones, the Sixties, and The Invisible Circus,” written by the prominent Scottish academic Mark West. From the Abstract of the essay: “This essay examines The Invisible Circus’s depiction of the historical relationship to the sixties experienced by those born during it – dubbed “Generation Jones” by Jonathan Pontell. The first section examines how Jonesian temporality is defined by having “missed” the sixties and shows how the Jonesian protagonist Phoebe creates a compensatory historical fantasy of the period, inspired by her sister Faith, a hippie who died in 1970. The second section analyzes Egan’s dramatization of the historical relationship to the sixties of Phoebe and Wolf, a sixties veteran. The final section considers the novel alongside other Jones writing on the sixties, showing how it can be read as an exemplary Jones novel and how it might, unwittingly, offer a model for Jonesian reckonings with the sixties.”
