    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 90.00

    Shaped by the experiences of the Iranian Revolution, Iranian-American autobiographers use this chaotic past to tell their current stories in the United States.

    BRILL 2006; US$ 177.00

    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2006; US$ 42.95

    What do R.K. Narayan, G.V. Desani, Anita Desai, Zulfikar Ghose, Suniti Namjoshi, and Salman Rushdie have in common? They represent Indian writing in English over five decades.

  • Cosmopolitan Criticism and Postcolonial Literatureby Robert Spencer

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    Via readings of novels by J.M. Coetzee, Timothy Mo and Salman Rushdie and the later poetry of W.B.

  • Islam in the Eastern African Novelby Emad Mirmotahari

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    Islam in the Eastern African Novel offers an idiosyncratic perspective on the sub-Saharan African novel.

  • Urban Space in Contemporary Egyptian Literatureby Mara Naaman

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    This book is an examination of how the space of the downtown served dual purposes as both a symbol of colonial influence and capital in Egypt, as well as a staging ground for the demonstrations of the Egyptian nationalist movement. It is through the lens of literature, in this case a body of texts that form an archive on the downtown, that one is able... more...

    University of Iowa Press 2007; US$ 29.95

    Cosmopolitical Claims is a profoundly original study of the works of Sten Nadonly, Emine Sevgi Özdamar, Feridun Zaimoglu, and 2006 Nobel prize in literature recipient Orhan Pamuk. Rather than using the proverbial hyphen in ?Turkish-German? to indicate a culture caught between two nations, Venkat Mani is interested in how Turkish-German literature engages... more...

  • Metaphor and Diaspora in Contemporary Writingby Jonathan P.A. Sell

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 95.00

    Choose ten major contemporary diasporic writers (from Abdulrazak to Zadie), ask ten leading authorities to write about their use of metaphor, and this is the result: a timely reassertion of metaphor's unrivalled capacity to encompass sameness and difference and create understanding and empathy across boundaries of nationality, race and ethnicity. more...
