The Indian English Novel of the New Millennium is a book of sixteen pieces of scholarly critique on recent Indian novels written in the English language; some on specific literary trends in fictional writing and others on individual texts published in the twenty-first century by contemporary Indian novelists such as Amitav Ghosh, Kiran Desai, Aravind Adiga, K. N. Daruwalla, Upamanyu Chatterjee, David Davidar, Esterine Kire Iralu, Siddharth Chowdhury and Chetan Bhagat. The volume focuses closely on the defining features of the different emerging forms of the Indian English novel, such as narratives of female subjectivity, crime fiction, terror novels, science fiction, campus novels, animal novels, graphic novels, disability texts, LGBT voices, dalit writing, slumdog narratives, eco-narratives, narratives of myth and fantasy, philosophical novels, historical novels, postcolonial and multicultural narratives, and Diaspora novels.

Pakistan's current generation of English-language novelists, born after the 1971 war and writing in the twenty-first century, must navigate between the ancient cultural history they have inherited and the relative youth of their country as a political construct. In this book, Dr David Waterman explores the works of seven writers of this generation, including both residents of Pakistan and authors from the diaspora, in order to examine the manner in which questions of history, culture, and identity arise from this process. Pakistan's history and its present moment have introduced a number of issues of urgent relevance that these writers explore in very practical terms: What does it mean to be a Pakistani now and what might it mean in the near future? How does one speak of past trauma without disrupting the present? What is the role for Islam to play in the governance of such a diverse country? How can we ensure the future of the boys and girls of this land, which is paradoxically both rich and poor? Where Worlds Collide is a survey of contemporary Pakistani writers and their efforts to trace the itinerary of Pakistan in the twenty-first century. The fictional portrayals of lives represented in the works of these authors take into account everyday issues, stories of individuals and their families, their joys and sorrows and fears, and place them in the context of the greater story of Pakistan.

Spanish And Latin American Women S Crime Fiction In The New Millennium

Crime fiction written by women in Spain and Latin America since the late 1980s has been successful in shifting attention to crimes often overlooked by their male counterparts, such as rape and sexual battery, domestic violence, child pornography, pederasty, and incest. In the twenty-first century, social, economic, and political issues, including institutional corruption, class inequality, criminalized oppression of immigrant women, crass capitalist market forces, and mediatized political and religious bodies, have at their core a gendered dimension. The conventions of the original noir, or novela negra, genre have evolved, such that some women authors challenge the noir formulas by foregrounding gender concerns while others imagine new models of crime fiction that depart drastically from the old paradigms. This volume, highlighting such evolution in the crime fiction genre, will be of interest to students, teachers, and scholars of crime fiction in Latin America and Spain, to those interested in crime fiction by women, and to readers familiar with the sub-genres of crime fiction, which include noir, the thriller, the police procedural, and the “cozy” novel.

New Novels In African Literature Today

This is a seminal work that discusses the validity of the perception that the new generation of African novelists is remarkably different in vision, style, and worldview from the older generation. The contention is that the older generation novelists who were too close to the colonial period in Africa had invariably made culture-conflict and little else their dominant thematic concern while the younger generation novelists are more versatile and more contemporary in their thematic preoccupations, and are more global in their vision and style. Do the facts in the novels justify and validate these claims? The 13 papers in this volume have been carefully selected to consider these issues. Brenda Cooper a renowned literary scholar from Cape Town writes on Chimamanda Adichie's Purple Hibiscus, Omar Sougou of Universite Gaston Berger, Senegal discusses `ambivalent inscriptions' in Buchi Emecheta's later novels, Clement Okafor of the University of Maryland, discusses `racial memory' in Isidore Okpewho's Call Me By My Rightful Name, juxtaposed between the world of the old and the realities of the present. Joseph McLaren, Hofstra University, New York, discusses Ngugi's latest novel, Wizard of the Crow, while Machiko Oike , Hiroshima University, Japan looks at a new theme in African adolescent literature, `the youth in an era of HIV/AIDS'. The thirteen chapters in this book provide abundant evidence of the contrasts and diversities which characterize the African novel not only geographically, but also ideologically and generationally.

The most ambitious work of fiction by a writer widely considered the most important novelist working in China today In this darkly comic novel, a group of women inhabits a world of constant surveillance, where informants lurk in the flowerbeds and false reports fly. Conspiracies abound in a community that normalizes paranoia and suspicion. Some try to flee—whether to a mysterious gambling bordello or to ancestral homes that can only be reached underground through muddy caves, sewers, and tunnels. Others seek out the refuge of Nest County, where traditional Chinese herbal medicines can reshape or psychologically transport the self. Each life is circumscribed by buried secrets and transcendent delusions. Can Xue's masterful love stories for the new millennium trace love's many guises—satirical, tragic, transient, lasting, nebulous, and fulfilling—against a kaleidoscopic backdrop drawn from East and West of commerce and industry, fraud and exploitation, sex and romance.

If you think you're overwhelmed by technology today, just wait for the year 2020. By then most employees will be working in technology or services -- Microsoft or monetary services. The population of retired persons will increase astonishingly. Social Security will revert to the bare-bones safety net that it was originally intended to be. Not only will Social Security feel the strain, but medical services and facilities will as well. Medical costs will continue to spiral until managed care becomes the rule, introducing competition into the equasion. And that group known as the "Baby Boomers" control the nation's wealth and politics. They just may get all that they want, even if it comes at the expense of the rest of the population. Those not in the know simply will not get the quality care they need. Even sex will be different, for better or worse, in the third millennium.
