Reviews

"Sophisticated . . ..convincing, sometimes surprising, and forward-thinking." - The Year s Work in English Studies "This is a solid and intriguing book that will appeal to scholars and students in South Asian literature, postcolonial studies, and contemporary literature in general. It is an innovative and interesting notion to approach South Asian novels through the lens of a Nehruvian-inspired notion of what India should be. As Guttman argues, the questions this raises are quite lively ones in India and Pakistan today, and by analogy are significant throughout the postcolonial world. Guttman draws on important sources and offers a new ways to read individual texts by such authors as Seth, Rushdie, Sahgal, Roy, Joshi, and Bajwa." - John Hawley, University of Santa Clara
