The main focus of interest in this book are the figures of writers and writing subjects in Rushdie’s oeuvre who contemplate and reflect on the nature and purpose of their craft, their authorial identity and their positioning in society and intellectual history, though their writing. It discusses the aesthetics of the texts they produce, and their subsequent agency in the world through the various ways they are interpreted and appropriated.
Authorship is a special category of storytelling; a specific craft and vocation giving expression to a conscious and purposeful project. The book focuses on what postcolonial literature specialist Dr Jane Poyner calls “the ethics of intellectual practice” as the major theme pervading Rushdie’s entire corpus of writing; fictional, essayistic and autobiographical).
The key audience for the book is, primarily, students of postcolonial literature, and of Salman Rushdie’s work in particular. It will also be of interest to readers wishing to get a deep insight into the works of one of the most prominent, and most controversial, contemporary writers.
Author: Dr. Trajanka Kortova Jovanovska has researched and studied in the UK, mainland Europe, and the Americas. Her book is adapted from her Doctoral research at the University of Avignon, France.
