About this Item: Sarup Book Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Vikram Chandra, who is among the finest living writers in English, has delved deep into the modern/postmodern psyche of India and, reaching its utmost recesses, has published two powerful and rich novels, Red Earth and Pouring Rain (1995) and Sacred Games (2006), and a collection of interrelated stories, love and Longing in Bombay (1997). Though exposed and also inclined to global, especially western literary discourses, he has consistently quested for his roots in the soil of his homeland and tried to discover an alternative tradition and discourse subverting the hegemony and exclusivity of the west. The present volume projects the international range of scholarship on Vikram Chandra through ten critical essays/papers and an interview. Taken together, the contributions by eminent scholars and critics point up plurality as a vital feature of a body of fiction that reflects both the innate heterogeneity of Indian culture and the complex condition of postcoloniality and globalisation, while refusing all monolithic belief-systems and constantly interweaving a multiplicity of narrative voices. Printed Pages: 263. Seller Inventory # 3562
