About this book

Travel Writing and the Transnational Author explores the travel writing and transnational literature of four authors from the 'postcolonial canon': Michael Ondaatje, Vikram Seth, Amitav Ghosh, and Salman Rushdie.

About the authors

Sam Knowles specialises in the study of postcolonial literatures and cultures, content and form in transnational literature, the recent history of the Indian subcontinent, and the intersections of graphic novel form and postcolonial representation. He has published articles and chapters in all of these areas.

Reviews

"This is a vital, and vibrant, study. It will help enrich not just travel writing studies, but indeed open up a much needed discourse and vocabulary on transnational literature as well as the muddled ground of crossovers between fiction and non-fiction. The interdisciplinary readings are superb and the author successfully presents a series of highly engaging and thoughtful readings of the works in question." - Rune Graulund, University of Southern Denmark
