Spatial Politics in the Postcolonial NoveleBook - 2009
In her innovative study of spatial locations in postcolonial texts, Sara Upstone adopts a transnational approach, focusing on the major texts of Wilson Harris, Toni Morrison, and Salmon Rushdie with reference to other postcolonial authors. Challenging the privileging of the nation, Upstone shows that spatial locales such as the journey, city, home, and body enable personal or communal statements of resistance against colonial prejudice and its neo-colonial legacies.
