If you want to read an elegant refutation of Barthes/Derrida/deconstructionism and the 'death of the author' you might check out Sean Burke's The Death and Return of the Author (University of Edinburgh). And also, oddly enough, this same Sean Burke has a fine slice of Brit noir coming out this summer from Serpent's Tail. Called Deadwater it's one to look out for, for all those still mourning the passing of Derek Raymond.
