Critical Identities in Contemporary Anglophone Diasporic Literature by Francoise Kral

Critical Identities in Contemporary Anglophone Diasporic Literature


Critical Identities in Contemporary Anglophone Diasporic Literature by Francoise Kral

The figure of the migrant has been celebrated by some as an icon of postmodernity, an emblematic figure in a world increasingly characterized by transnationalism, globalization and mass migrations. Kral takes issue with this view of the migrant experience through in-depth analyses of writers including Salman Rushdie, Zadie Smith and Monica Ali.


'This is a work of admirable scope and scholarship: illuminating and thought-provoking, it sets out to address contending issues with an explicit and accessible approach.' - Mariangela Palladino, Journal of Postcolonial Writing'
