About this book

Combining analysis with detailed accounts of authors' careers and the global trade in literature, this book assesses how postcolonial writers respond to their own reception and niche positioning, parading their exotic otherness to metropolitan audiences, within a global marketplace.

Reviews

'This is a first-rate, controversial book by a young and alert scholar working at the cutting edge of a fast evolving field. Brouillette's writing is cogent and original. It covers acres of ground while drawing on incisive case studies. It is graceful, provocative and interesting. It is the real McCoy.' - Robert Fraser, Open University, UK

'Postcolonial Writers in the Global Literary Marketplace is a fascinating study of a topic we (surprisingly) don't often talk about, despite our supposedly insatiable curiosity about the lives of the rich and famous...One measure of scholarly work's value is its ability to serve as a foundation for further scholarship, and Brouilette's book certainly deserves to meet its goal "to encourage more analyses of the relationships between literature, politics, and economics.' - John Clement Ball, Chimo

' the boldness and quality of her readings alone should make us sit up and pay attention.' Stefan Helgesson, Safundi
