Patricia Waugh is a professor of English at Durham University. Her first book was Metafiction: the Theory and Practice of Self-conscious Fiction (1984); since then she has written numerous books and essays on modernism and postmodernism, intellectual history and aesthetics. She is currently working with scientists, medical practitioners, anthropologists and artists on two major funded research projects: a Wellcome-funded project on hearing voices and a Leverhulme-funded collaboration on tipping points, investigating radical change: how the new comes into the world. She will deliver the inaugural British Academy Annual Lecture on the Novel in 2014. A version of 'On the Exaggerated Reports...' appeared in Dalkey Archive Press's Review of Contemporary Fiction in April 2013.
