This study is a cultural materialist analysis of 62 Great Recession novels. It identifies and analyses popular motifs, archetypes, myths and themes circulating within Great Recession fiction. The research finds that, due to the prevalence of realism, the novels often reproduce dominant ideologies, particularly neoliberalism, but also offer critical subversive interventions.
