The Fiction of Abdulrazak Gurnah: Journeys through Subalternity and Agency

This book is an insightful work on Abdulrazak Gurnah’s fiction, and explores the different valences of oppression and agency, subjectivity, memory, race, gender, place, solidarity, class, and crime. It is an expansive study of Gurnah’s work and lays down foundations for a varied study on the author. It approaches Gurnah’s fiction from multiple angles, and takes it beyond the postcolonial perspective into varied and vast arenas of literary theory.
