Summary
This book examines a strand of innovative contemporary travel writing that experiments with form, content and the politics of representation. Writers such as Michael Ondaatje, Caryl Phillips, Daphne Marlatt and Sam Miller transform the genre by inscribing travel, migration, mobility and displacement within a variety of original textual strategies to work through questions of movement and the politics of personal identity in relation to the complex interlocutions of space, place and subjectivity
