Abstract

This chapter analyses Stuart Hood's five late novels, 'A Storm from Paradise' (1985), 'The Upper Hand' (1987), 'The Brutal Heart' (1989), 'A Den of Foxes' (1991), and 'The Book of Judith' (1995), arguing that Hood's fiction identifies with new forms of resistance and seeks connections with emergent if imperfect forms of radical community.
