Book Description

July 10, 2007 0230507840 978-0230507845 1st
Rather than lamenting that postcolonial writers 'sell out' to multinational corporate publishing, parading their exotic otherness to metropolitan audiences, Sarah Brouillette assesses how they respond to their own reception and niche positioning within a global marketplace that has faced staunch political critique. Combining analysis of recent postcolonial texts with detailed accounts of authors' careers and the global trade in literature, this book is an exciting contribution to globalization studies and the emerging history of the postcolonial book.

Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is a first-rate, controversial book by a young and alert scholar working at the cutting edge of a fast evolving field. Brouillette's writing is cogent and original. It covers acres of ground while drawing on incisive case studies. It is graceful, provocative and interesting. It is the real McCoy.' - Robert Fraser, Open University, UK 'Postcolonial Writers in the Global Literary Marketplace is a fascinating study of a topic we (surprisingly) don't often talk about, despite our supposedly insatiable curiosity about the lives of the rich and famous...One measure of scholarly work's value is its ability to serve as a foundation for further scholarship, and Brouilette's book certainly deserves to meet its goal "to encourage more analyses of the relationships between literature, politics, and economics.' - John Clement Ball, Chimo '!the boldness and quality of her readings alone should make us sit up and pay attention.' -- Stefan Helgesson, Safundi
