His research interests lie in modern/contemporary fiction and theory. His first book, Conrad, Language, and Narrative (Cambridge University Press, 2002), received the Joseph Conrad Society of America's Adam Gillon Award for the most significant work in Conrad studies from 2001-4. Contemporary Fiction and the Uses of Theory (Palgrave, 2006) is a study of the reception and representation of theoretical ideas in literary fiction since the 1960s. He is currently writing a book on the representation of sleep and sleep-related states in the modern novel. With Hilary Hinds (Lancaster) and Garrett Sullivan (Penn State University), Michael is one of the co-founders of the 'Sleep Cultures' website:http://www.sleepcultures.com
