This is a provocative work on a timely subject. In a series of trenchant analyses of Puerto Rican writers, as well as Dangarembga, Erdrich, and Tawil, the author makes the case for 'extimate subjectivities' as a key to the interventions of postcolonial feminism. It is a fascinating account of radical possibility in contemporary postcolonial feminist writing.
(Peter Hitchcock, Professor of English, The Graduate Center, City University of New York)
This is a hands-on, eloquent, and refreshingly honest kind of criticism, rooted in feminism while drawn to community organizing and its battle with the neoliberal 'feminization of poverty.' Unimpressed by the anodyne formulas of 'cosmo-theory,' Khader takes us through a series of superb close-readings from the intimacy of the domestic to the ex-timacy of the political, giving us along the way one of the best defenses anywhere of internationalism as an ethos, an aesthetic, and a politics. A new kind of theory and maybe (hopefully) its future.
(Timothy Brennan, University of Minnesota)
