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.

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
