Does anyone know of a monograph/survey on the modern history of (basic or elliptic) hypergeometric functions and their applications?

I haven't had much time to search the literature, and because it is summer it is hard to reach professors or specialists, which is why I am asking the question here. It is also likely that there are obvious choices out there that I am unaware of because of my ignorance in the field. I would appreciate it a lot if along with the suggestions you could give a quick description of what the book/article treats.
