Reviews

“This volume should be on the essential reading lists of any course on postcolonialism, cultural studies, world/minority literatures and indeed even international studies. It is a brave and laudable effort … which tackles a subject that few others have dared to confront.” (Wasafiri, Issue 85, June, 2016)


"This is a necessary book that sets out to study and counter the institutionalisation of postcolonial criticism and the mainstream prizing of some fictions from South Asia." - Tabish Khair, author of The Thing About Thugs and How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position
