Cultural fictions - texts written from the perspective of the edge - are the focus of this exciting and enlightening book. The author examines the formations of narratives of identity in contemporary 'borderline' fictions and films. The work of migrant and marginalised groups located at the boundaries of nations, cultures, classes, ethnicities, sexualities and genders, is explored through an intricate weaving of theory with textual analysis. Organised around the themes of memory, tradition and 'belonging', the book proposes the space of 'migrant' writing - an emerging third space - as one that challenges fixed assumptions about identity.The cross-cultural range - including texts from British, Caribbean, Chinese-American, Indo-Caribbean, Canadian, Cuban and Indian writers; the original discussion of authors such as Maxine Hong Kingston, Gloria Anzaldua, Amy Tan, Gish Jen, Hanif Kureishi and Chang-rae Lee; and engagement with the work of theorists including Bakhtin, Freud, Lyotard, de Certeau, Dele

Review:

An excellent example of how to discuss a wide range of literature without being paralysed by theory. ! Bromley's book is a timely reminder of the way in which phenomena such as diaspora, which are so important in postcolonial writing and theorizing, are nevertheless not simply reducible to the concerns of postcolonialism. One of the book's definite strengths is the way it avoids obvious or easy choices in its selection of authors and texts. The result is an illuminating discussion.
