Summary
  • "This stimulating account of transnationalism proposes ways to resolve the tensions between postmodern and postcolonial interpretations of literary culture since 1950. Nabokov, Rushdie, and the Transnational Imagination makes a strong case for loosening the two hundred year old grip of nationalism on literary study and shows Nabokov and Rushdie's decisive relevance to this major, ongoing, scholarly conversation."--John Burt Foster, Jr., University Professor, George Mason University and editor of Recherche Litteraire/Literary Research
  • Nabokov, Rushdie, and the Transnational Imagination argues that exiled and migrant novelists create alternate worlds which teach their readers to construct new, nation-like communities. Taking Vladimir Nabokov and Salman Rushdie as model practitioners, this book shows how such writers are remaking national literary traditions. These playful, puzzle-filled texts transcend classification as postcolonial or postmodern; instead, they help identify and create a lineage of boundary-crossing, and test how far the real world can be changed by fiction. --Book Jacket
