At the intersection of Derrida’s philosophy and Spivak’s
influence on narrative studies, this study offers a critical
effort that goes against the mainstream of contemporary
studies about autobiographical texts, here Reading
Lolita in Tehran and Persepolis. On another level,
this book is an attempt to interrogate critically the
relation of subalternity and autobiographical writing, which
is only made possible by extending the range of the genre of
autobiography so that it can bear witness to what has been
condemned to be unnarratable and, consequently, unheard.

Sara Khorshidi holds a PhD in Comparative
Literature from Justus Liebig University Gießen.
