Om Indian Writing in English and the Global
Indian Writing in English and the Global Literary Market delves into the influences and pressures of the marketplace on this genre, contending that it has been both a gatekeeper and a significant force in shaping the production and consumption of this literature. As well as providing case studies of selected contemporary Indian novels in English and comparing how diasporic authors fare compared to authors within India, this volume also provides theoretical insights into the postcolonial framework in which the global literary marketplace is embedded, and comments on the exoticization and marketing strategies adopted as a result.
