Summary
The chosen novels are analysed within their own fictional and ethical framework. Their unique historical contribution is assessed in the context of the developing academic and public debate about totalitarianism. The discussion of native British and American/Canadian writers as well as Eastern European writers, who came to write about their first-hand experiences in the English language, leads to a comprehensive picture of Anglo-American fiction's response to the most important political phenomenon of our century
