Spanning multiple sites of cultural production in South Asia, this book investigates the deeply ambivalent responses to the opposing compulsions of memory and forgetting. Mallot reveals how writers such as Salman Rushdie, Michael Ondaatje, Kamila Shamsie and Amitav Ghosh create unusual ways to indict nationalism's sinsby accessing and encoding the past and in so doing, he expands memory studies in new, provocative directions.
