About this book

Moving away from territorially-bound narratives toward a more kinetic conceptualization of identity, this book represents the first analysis of the politics of American identity within the fiction and memoirs of Isabel Allende. Craig offers a radical transformation of societal frameworks through revised notions of place, temporality, and space.

Reviews

Craig's book is something entirely new: it engages with the fluidity of national affiliation in a globalized world in which territorial borders are rendered less relevant. Craig deploys theoretical tools with elegance and aplomb; one never has the sensation of encountering theory for theory's Sake. On the contrary, her discussions of diverse perspectives on nationalism and national identity, gender and patriarchy, and eco-criticism are used to unlock meaning and offer exciting and genuinely original readings of texts as diverse as My Invented Country , The Sum of Our Days , The Infinite Plan , Paula , Aphrodite , Daughter of Fortune , Portrait in Sepia , and Zorro .' Susan Castillo, Harriet Beecher Stowe Professor of American Studies, King's College London, UK
