The Geography of voice: Canadian literature of the South Asian diaspora
A comprehensive anthology of the best of the poetry, fiction and drama by those writers who trace their ancestry to the Indian subcontinent. The writers included in these pages originate from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri lanka, as well as East and South Africa and the Caribbean. What they have in common besides their ancestry is that they reside in and create their work in Canada. This anthoogy is a landmark in Canadian literature, being the first detailed compilation of the literature of the recent wave of South Asian immigrants to Canada. As such is should supplement the well-established but outdated anthologies of CanLit. Includes writing by: Himani Bannerji, Krisantha Sri Bhaggiyadatta, Rienzi Crusz, Cyril Dabydeen, Ramabai Espinet, Lakshmi Gill, Arnold Itwaru, Surjeet Kalsey, Suniti Namjoshi, Uma Parameswaran, Ajmer Rode, Suwanda Sugunasiri, Asoka Weerasinghe, Rana Bose, Rahul Varma, Stephen Orlov, Ven Begamudre, Neil Bissoondath, Ved Devajee, Farida Karodia, Rohinton Mistry, Rharati Mukherjee, Nazneen Sadiq, Sam Selvon, and MG Vassanji
