Writing the Diaspora: Essays on Cul[t]ure and Identity
"The essays in this volume span a variety of writers such as Kamala Markandaya, Gita Mehta and Shashi Tharoor, and many writers and artists who live in Canada. Uma Parameswaran brings her own experience of living for forty years outside India to her analysis of diasporic identity and culture. The essays, spread over several decades, work through many genres, methodologies and strategies as they display a cross-cultural sensibility and attempt to look at Indian culture and cultural artifacts from the Canadian perspective."
