Abstract

Although it is often thought that death has been removed from view in the twentieth century into the hospital, the hospice, the funeral parlour, the crematorium, this article shows, through a reading of a range of British fiction writers (such as J. G. Ballard, Gordon Burn, Iain Sinclair, Tom McCarthy) how death and dying are ubiquitous in the contemporary mediated world.
