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'
