About this book

Focusing on British novels about the Muslim immigrant experience published after 9/11; this book examines the promise as well as the limits of 'British Muslim' identity as a viable form of self-representation, and the challenges - particularly for women - of reconciling non-Western religious identity with the secular policies of Western states.

About the authors

Esra Mirze Santesso is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Georgia, USA, where she teaches postcolonial literature. She has published a wide range of articles on contemporary British literature, Muslim diasporic identity, and Turkish literature and film, including an interview with Orhan Pamuk.

Reviews

“Santesso offers another compelling intervention into the gaps of many studies of contemporary Anglophone literature: their treatment of everyday religious faith and practice, particularly for diasporic Muslim women. … through an examination of narratives of disorientation, Santesso suggests that a more complex and textured portrait emerges of immigrant Muslim women.” (Emily Johansen, Contemporary Women's Writing, Vol. 10 (1), March, 2016)
