The book offers a sharp analysis of the relationship between
transnationalism and patterns of identity negotiation in
contemporary fiction of migration. Through an in-depth
reading of exemplary works by Anita Desai, Kiran Desai and
Jhumpa Lahiri, the book examines the multifarious
implications of translocation, de-territorialization and
return migration upon displaced individuals. The critical
force of the book lies in its comprehensive presentation of
transnational processes that recommends it as a rich
contribution to the archive of works on transnational
migration and the diasporic experience in a global context.
