About the Author:

KHAIR,TABISH

Review:


* '...splendidly written, well researched, and balances theory and critical practice extemely well. The interweaving of literary and social motifs is also deftly accomplished.' -- Terry Eagleton, Oxford University


"Khair is successful in his bid 'to address Indian English texts without mutilating them to fit postcolonial paradigms.'"-- Meenakshi Mukherjee, former Professor, Delhi University


"Khair's study is worlds away from the glossy Sunday supplements. He subjects writers and their works to a barrage of intellectual heavy artillery...Khair writes about the instrinsic, strictly technical, problems of representation that confront Indian writers of English, ever in danger of sounding parodic or patronising about non-Babu Indians." -- Alok Rai, Outlook


"[An] intelligent and argumentative book on contemporary Indian English novels." -- Michael Wood, London Review of Books
