Rather than lamenting that postcolonial writers 'sell out' to multinational corporate publishing, parading their exotic otherness to metropolitan audiences, Sarah Brouillette assesses how they respond to their own reception and niche positioning within a global marketplace that has faced staunch political critique. Combining analysis of recent postcolonial texts with detailed accounts of authors' careers and the global trade in literature, this book is an exciting contribution to globalization studies and the emerging history of the postcolonial book.
