This book aims at exploring the world of diasporic fiction in Britain, with a special focus on Salman Rushdie, Hanif Kureishi and Meera Syal. Through an interdisciplinary approach and with a wealth of illuminating examples, Esterino Adami deals with a wide variety of critical issues such as the impact of ethnic communities, the reinvention of Englishness against the backdrop of intercultural negotiations, the rise of diasporic cinema and the literary experience of hybridity. The author also traces the narrative and stylistic features of these ground-breaking writers in the light of postcolonial discourse, postmodernism and cultural studies.
