Edwards, Caroline (2009) Microtopias: the post-apocalyptic communities of Jim Crace’s 'The pesthouse'. Textual Practice, 23 (5). ISSN 0950-236XFull text not available from this repository.
This article positions The Pesthouse as part of a broader contemporary shift towards the scaling down of utopian imaginaries and argues that the utopian communities in Crace’s distant post-apocalyptic American future function as critical, micro-political alternatives; what I call literary microtopias.
