Writers of the Caribbean Diaspora: Shifting Homelands, Travelling Identities is a multifaceted collection of essays that unfolds the charge of the Caribbean writer to represent a region with a complicated history and an even more complex future. It encompasses the work of Caribbean writers living and writing abroad, rather than at home and thus, evaluates, critiques and reflects on Caribbean identity and reality from the perspectives of exiled authors. Questions of race, nation-building and postcolonial separation/connection, the Caribbean landscape, and navigating the minefield of culture are thoroughly examined. The essays have been chosen by editors Jasbir Jain and Supriya Agarwal from presentations at a seminar on Indo-Caribbean writing held in Jaipur, India. The selections are as rich and varied as the Caribbean itself, presenting and examining the work of authors such as Jean Rhys, the three NAipauls - Shiva, V.S. and Seepersad - Austin Clarke, Jamaica Kincaid, Caryl Phillips, George Lamming, and Arnold Itwaru among others. An excellent read for anyone interested in Caribbean Literature and the study of Caribbean Writers, Writers of the Caribbean Diaspora: Shifting Homelands, Travelling Identities is also a tribute to the Caribbean itself.
