Social Consciousness in the Postcolonial Indian English Fiction is an anthology of twenty three critical articles which set out to explore the social mode of the postcolonial Indian English fiction representing its myriad shades of discourse and awareness which over the years have turned unto a complex web of insights and realizations. This book thus attempts to map out some features of the postcolonial fiction in terms of the interactions between the external reality of the postcolonial India and the novelists responses to the changing scenario within the country. The essays dwell on several vital issues from the identity crisis to the national quest for self image to find out whether the postcolonial image can have any real fulfillment within a framework which is mainly the legacy of the colonial past. The country's root tradition her indigenous culture women's causes and the subaltern situations deserve further probing from all if the nation wants to survive in healthy ways. The novelists discussed in this anthology are mainly Kamala Markandaya Bhabani Bhattacharya Nayantara Sahgal Amitabh Ghosh Manoj Das Kiran Desai Indira Goswami Bhasavraj Naikar Rohinton Mistry Bharati Mukherjee and Chetan Bhagat. It is expected that the articles will stimulate the students of literature as well as teachers in framing their own responses to the style and texture of the postcolonial Indian English Fiction which has already carved an identity of its own with a definite voice vision and style. 304 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 75420
