In her major new study of postcolonial fiction, Judie Newman demonstrates the subversive nature of that fiction, in its refusal to be contained within purely "literary" bounds, or even within the bounds of discourse. She investigates the ways in which major contemporary novelists from India, Africa, and the Caribbean have explored colonial and post-colonial situations, particularly by revising the classics of the past in relation to contemporary politics and popular culture.
