ABOUT THE BOOK

The fifty-eight writers included in this new sourcebook have roots in India but represent diverse geographical areas of the Indian Diaspora: from the South Pacific to South America, from the Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius and Singapore to the cities and suburbs of London, New York, Johannesburg, and Toronto. Their lives, works, and themes are examined individually but with attention to their shared diasporic consciousness as manifested in their literary productions. Included are major international figures such as V.S. Naipaul, and Salman Rushdie and talented emerging writers. Each entry begins with relevant biographical information, offers an interpretive summary of the major works, provides an overview of the critical reception, and concludes with primary and secondary bibliographies. A brief appendix lists writers with place of birth and places of domicile. The introduction to the volume discusses theoretical issues pertinent to Indian diasporic studies.
